Facing its toughest test of the season, The Master’s College men’s basketball tallied an upset of National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics No. 15 Biola early in the week before taking on a top-flight NCAA Division II program in No. 14 Cal Poly Pomona to close the week.

The women’s basketball team took to the hardwood for two contests this week, splitting the contests.

Off the court, other sports weren’t in action for TMC — but that didn’t stop the women’s soccer team from getting some recognition.

Men’s Basketball
The Mustangs went through its first tough stretch of the season this week when they took on NAIA No. 15 Biola in their Golden State Athletic Conference opener, followed by Central Bible and NCAA Div. II No. 14-ranked Cal Poly Pomona.

TMC got off to a hot start, upsetting Biola on Tuesday 61-55 behind 15 points from Anthony Cammon and 13 points from Leif Karlberg. Head coach Chuck Martin said afterward that the game was the best 40 minutes the team had played to that point in the season. Nine players scored for the Mustangs, who outshot Biola 46.7 percent to 30.2 percent in the second half.

In a potential trap game Thursday, the Mustangs defeated Central Bible College from Springfield, Mo., 96-46. Leif Karlberg scored a game-high 21 points. Logan Quinn came off the bench to add 15, including four 3-point shots and Chris Patureau scored 10 points.

TMC didn’t have much time to celebrate the victory, though, as the Mustangs hosted Cal Poly Pomona on Friday.

Master’s was in position to defeat Cal Poly Saturday night, leading by two points with 3:33 to play before Pomona came back to win 58-56 to drop TMC to 8-2. Anthony Cammon led with 13 points.

The loss is just TMC’s second of the season, putting its record at 8-2, 1-0 GSAC.

Women’s Basketball
TMC opened the week by defeating Cal State San Marco on Tuesday 57-47 at Bross Gym. Zoe Scott led the way with 16 points, and freshman Whitney Best added 14 points. Lena Rivera and Morgan Scwegler each led Master’s with five rebounds in the contest.

The Mustangs fell behind in the first half, trailing 22-18 at the break in part because of being outshot in the period 41.7 percent to 25 percent. The Mustangs, though, rebounded to shoot 54.2 percent in the second half and outscored San Marco 39-25 down the stretch.

In the second game of the week, the Mustangs resumed GSAC play, falling 60-47 to Biola on Saturday at Bross Gym.
Scott and Kristen Huff each scored 10 points, Whitney Best scored nine and TMC shot just 33.3 percent from the floor.

The loss dropped TMC’s season record to 6-5, 0-2 in the GSAC.

Women’s Soccer
Bobbie Roberts was named as an honorable mention to the NAIA 2011 Women’s Soccer All-American team after a season that saw the defender score three goals and tally two assists. The honor marks the second consecutive season Roberts was named to the list.
