Despite losing two straight games earlier this month, The Master's College men's basketball team remained in the NAIA Division I top 25 poll.

The Mustangs are tied for 23rd along with Evangel University of Missouri.

TMC recovered from a Jan. 10 82-67 loss to Westmont and a 79-67 setback to California Baptist on Thursday by beating Hope International 89-71 on Saturday night.

The win moved the Mustangs to 12-5 overall and 4-3 in the Golden State Athletic Conference.

The Master's College's women's team is ranked No. 20 in the NAIA Division I, moving up five spots from last week.

The Lady Mustangs were 2-0 last week, moving their season mark to 10-6 and 5-2 in the GSAC.

Sticking together
Former Canyon High lineman Nick Madia and Randy Lemus have played together for five years through high school and into college.

They are about to extend that streak.

Madia and Lemus are headed to West Liberty, W. Va. to play for West Liberty State University.

The Hilltoppers finished the season ranked 10th nationally in points per game and fifth in passing yards per game in NCAA Division II football.

Transferring from Los Angeles Pierce College, the Canyon graduates both have the opportunity to start next season on the offensive line.

Both players were members of the repeat CIF-Southern Section division title teams with Canyon in 2005 and 2006.

Lemus was named to the Southern California Football Association All-Pacific Conference first team and Madia to the second team before heading east.

They have already started participating in off-season workouts.

Seeing red
College of the Canyons offensive tackle Joe Evinger has committed to play football at the University of Louisville, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Standing at 6-foot-7-inches and weighing 340 pounds, the unanimous 2008 first-team junior college All-American will still have two years of eligibility with the Cardinals.

Evinger picked Louisville over Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Nevada and Tennessee, all of which had expressed interest.

Gettin' it done
Hart swimmer Jordan Danny finished second in the finals of the women's 200-yard breaststroke at the Grand Prix meet at Belmont Plaza in Long Beach Sunday.

A member of the Canyons Aquatic Club, she was joined by Chelsea Griffiths (backstroke), K.T. Livingstone (butterfly) and Hayley Good (freestyle) at the event.

Danny finished less than two seconds behind the winner with a time of 2:11:18.

Also competing at the meet was 2008 Olympic gold-medalist Ryan Lochte.
