The wrath of the Golden State Athletic Conference just bit The Master’s College men’s basketball team.

Coming off two straight wins against some of the conference’s top teams last week, TMC suffered a 77-63 setback against Azusa Pacific University on Tuesday night in Azusa.

TMC came into the day tied for first place in the GSAC and ranked No. 10 in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics coaches poll, but didn’t give No. 16 APU much of a challenge this time around.

The Mustangs (14-6, 6-3) were outrebounded 45-26 and outscored 38-18 in the paint in a game the Cougars led most of the way.

APU (16-4, 6-3) went on a 10-0 run that stretched for more than five minutes in the first half to go in front 24-14 at the 4:18 mark. It was a lead APU would never relinquish.

Four Cougars scored in double figures with Anthony Johnson’s 21 leading the way.

TMC relied on two players for most of its scoring with Anthony Cammon recording a game-high 24 points and teammate Mike Harmon adding 14 points off the bench.

Other than that, it was a tough shooting night for the Mustangs, who made just 38.7 percent of their shots.

TMC will now fall into a tie for second place in the GSAC with San Diego Christian coming to town on Saturday for another conference battle.
