A hot first half helped The Master’s College build an insurmountable lead and cruise to an 86-63 victory over Corban University of Oregon in the first round of the National Christian College Athletic Association Division I West Regional playoffs on Wednesday at Bross Gym.

The NCCAA is an association of Christian schools in the United States and Canada, and it holds tournaments for teams that do not qualify for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics national tournaments.

The Mustangs (18-14) shot a scalding 61 percent in the first half, including 58.8 percent from beyond the arc. They also held Corban to 27 percent shooting and led 47-25 at halftime.

The lead ballooned to 33 points in the second half, and Corban never got closer than 21 points.

Mustangs guard Devin Dyer shot 5-of-6 from beyond the 3-point line and scored 25 points and also had seven assists. Forward Jon Hogan added 16 points off the bench, while forward Chris Patureau added 11 points and eight rebounds.

The Warriors (18-14) could have lost by even more if they hadn’t gotten to the free throw line as much as they did. They hit 24-of-31 free throws, with 19 of the makes coming in the second half.

Erik Cronrath had 18 points and 12 rebounds to lead Corban, while Jordan Carter added 16 points.

Anthony Cammon scored 12 points and Leif Karlberg added 11 for TMC, which will host Hope International at 7:30 p.m. today in its next NCCAA West Regional playoff game.
