Anthony Cammon hit a jump shot with four seconds left to send The Master’s College basketball into overtime in its game against Southwestern Assemblies of God in the quarterfinals of the National Christian College Athletic Association national tournament on Wednesday in Winona Lake, Indiana.

But in the extra period, the Mustangs went just 2-of-10 from the field and lost 80-73.
With the loss, TMC can’t compete for a tournament title.

The Mustangs fall into the losers’ bracket where they will play Truett-McConnell of Georgia today at 10:45 a.m.

TMC (19-15 overall), winners of the NCCAA West Regional finals over Hope International on March 8, found itself in an early hole Wednesday as the Lions (24-9) jumped out to 32-18 lead with under seven minutes to play in the first half.

But The Master’s closed out the half on a 16-4 run to enter the break trailing 36-34.

The Mustangs took the lead early in the second half, on a jumper by Leif Karlberg, and the teams traded baskets down the stretch.
There were eight lead changes in the game and the score was tied 10 times.

The Master’s took a lead in overtime, when Paul Brown pulled down an offensive rebound and made a layup to take a 70-68 lead one minute into the extra frame.

The Mustangs used an advantage in the paint to outscore the Lions in the game, 42-20 inside.

But the Mustangs managed just three points the rest of the way.

Chris Patureau led the Mustangs with 17 points and 10 rebounds off the bench. Devin Dyer scored 14, Cammon added 13 and Karlberg scored 10.
