The Master’s College men’s basketball won its last three games of the regular season to earn a spot in the Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament.

Unfortunately, that spot was a No. 8 seeding, which pitted the Mustangs against No. 1 Concordia.

TMC team did its best to keep up and managed to tie the score late in the game, but eventually fell 70-60 to the Eagles in the first round of the conference tournament on Thursday night in Irvine.

With 4:19 remaining in regulation, the Mustangs (13-18) were knotted up at 54-54 with Concordia, which is ranked second in the latest National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics poll.

The Eagles (28-3) answered back with a 3-pointer by Peter Smith that established game-winning momentum down the stretch.

Four different TMC players scored in double digits with guard Anthony Cammon’s 18 points leading the way.

Throughout the first half, it was a back-and-forth game, totaling five lead changes in the period. Concordia led 30-27 at halftime.

In the second half, the Eagles tried to pull away, but the Mustangs kept the score close until the waning minutes.

As a team, TMC shot just 31 percent from the field.

Also contributing for the Mustangs were Devin Dyer (13 points), Joey Fuca (11) and Leif Karlberg (10).

Cameron Gliddon led Concordia with 15 points.

TMC finished 6-14 in the GSAC and had to recover from a 2-13 start in conference play to earn a berth into the tournament.
