The Master's College men's basketball team lost to Vanguard 87-65 Saturday extending its current losing streak to four straight games.

The streak is the longest of the season for the Mustangs (11-12, 5-8), as they had not lost more than two in a row until now.
"We've gone from being in the race to now being out of the race," said head coach Chuck Martin.
The Master's College trailed most of the game by double digits.
Early in the second half and with the crowd behind them, the Mustangs managed a run to cut the lead to seven points.
Two back-to-back field goals by Jeremy Haggerty ignited a 9-3 run to put the score at 48-41 Vanguard.
However, the run did not last long.
Field goals by the Lions' Brandon Henderson and Gregory Scott ended the run, putting Vanguard back up by double digits.
The Mustangs fell behind halfway through the first half thanks to the hot 3-point shooting by the Lions.
With the Lions up 16-10, Vanguard's Brian Roberts hit two 3-pointers to put them up by double digits for the first time in the game.
Things got worse for The Master's as Greg Gusiff managed a three-point play and followed it up with a 3-pointer to put them up 28-12 with just under 10 minutes to play.
The Mustangs got hot at the end of the first half, managing a late run.
In the last five minutes of the half, Ryan Zamroz scored five points and Haggerty added four to help cut the deficit and send the game into halftime with a score of 37-30 Vanguard.
Vanguard came out in the second half with a 9-2 run to give it the 47-32 lead.
"They made shots, we missed shots," Martin said. "We relegated ourselves to a jumpshooting team and we had a horrible shooting night."
Zamroz led The Master's College with 24 points and Haggerty added 18 of his own.
"I can score all the points in the world and if our team doesn't win, it doesn't really matter," Zamroz said.
Gusiff finished with 19 points including four 3-pointers in the game.
"It seems like they always shoot really well against us," Zamroz said. "They just shot the lights out in the first half and second half it didn't seem like it was stopping anytime soon."
The Master's College will hope to snap its losing streak when it hosts Biola Tuesday.
