Men Lose Nail Biter to Mustangs

January 24th, 2007

Westmont men’s basketball lost a heartbreaker at Murchison Gymnasium on Tuesday night as the Warriors fell to The Master’s 66-64. Westmont, which had battled back from an 11 point first half deficit to take a 32-27 advantage into half time, held the lead throughout the second half until the final 21 seconds.

“The game could have gotten away from us in the first half and I thought we did a very nice job coming back and taking the lead at halftime,” said head coach John Moore. “And I thought we played well (in the second half) until about the four and one-half minute mark when we stopped scoring. We didn’t score another basket in the last four and one-half minutes and turned the ball over five of our last ten possessions.”
