The Master's College said farewell to the Volunteer State and its season as the Mustangs bowed out from the NAIA Division I Women's Tournament on Friday in Jackson, Tennessee.

The Lady Mustangs were defeated by the No. 1 seeded Bulldogs of Union University in second round tournament action 95-78.

This is the Bulldogs second win this season over the Lady Mustangs ending TMC's season at 21-12.

Both teams met back on Nov. 16 with the Bulldogs defeating the Lady Mustangs 110-99.

TMC answered it with an 11-2 spurt, cutting the margin to 17-11.

That's the closest the Lady Mustangs would get.

Union went on a 16-4 run after a 3-pointer from TMC's Jenna Reed to take a 43-24 lead with less than two minutes left in the half.

The Bulldogs took a 45-28 lead into halftime.

They combined for 100 points.

TMC got to within eight points in the second half, but Kayla Hudson's 3-pointer with less than 10 minutes left in the game gave Union a 68-57 lead.

Hudson's trey left the Bulldogs in the lead by double digits for the rest of the game.

She led all scorers with 23 points.

The Lady Mustangs were out-rebounded by the Bulldogs 48-30.

TMC had five players in double figures and was led by Stacy Nanninga's 18 points. Jennifer Ayers-Stamper scored 15 points, Erica Inge and Amanda DuRocher each had 12 points and Annie Gillespie had 11.

The difference was also shooting.

TMC was 26-of-73 from the field, while Union was 31-of-61.

Gillespie and Ayers-Stamper were a combined 9-for-32.

Gillespie was 11-of-18 in the Nov. 16 meeting with a career-high 29 points.
