SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – The Master’s College women’s basketball team notched its sixth win of the season Friday night in an 88-72 victory over U.C. Merced (1-7).
“I’m glad to get a win on the road,” assessed head coach Dan Waldeck. “With the long week of academics, a four hour ride, and playing on the road, I’m proud to get back in the winning trail.”
Friday night’s victory was the third-highest scoring game the 10th-ranked Lady Mustangs have produced in the 2013-14 campaign, and the second time this season the squad tallied 88 points.
“A couple players, Whitney Best and Kelly Burns, played really well and brought it when it was needed most,” further assessed Waldeck.
Burns (Yorba Linda, CA), led the Lady Mustangs by notching a double-double shooting a team-high 20 points and yanking down 10 rebounds. Best (Snohomish, WA) scored 11 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, and tallied 3 assists and steals.
Also spearheading the way for TMC was Zoe Scott (Spokane, WA) who tallied 14 points in the victory, while Megan Lindsley (Vancouver, WA) scored 13 more.
Overall, TMC went 31-62 (.500) from the field, 8-19 (0.421) behind the arc, and 18-24 (.750) at the charity stripe. The squad also yanked down 38 total rebounds, chipped in 21 dimes, and tallied 7 steals.
Now, the Lady Mustangs will head home and set their sights on next Thursday’s match against Bethesda. Tipoff is set for 7:00 p.m. at Bross Court.
