ROUNDUP : Master's Gets Push in Opener

November 17, 1994|DAVE DESMOND

NEWHALL — Most athletes try to follow their coaches' directives.

The Master's College basketball player James Mosley was more focused on his father's advice when the Mustangs opened their season Wednesday night against Walla Walla.

"My dad always told us to push ourselves," said the Mustang junior guard, whose father died last week.

"That's exactly what I'm going to do this year."

His father would have been proud.

Mosley scored 26 points as the host Mustangs walloped Walla Walla, 116-46, picking up where they left off last year in Bill Oates' first season as coach.

The game was over from the start.

Mosley's three-pointer to open the scoring sent the Mustangs on their way to a 12-0 lead. They increased the margin to 63-24 at halftime.

Mike Penberthy and Leo Gorauskas each added added 17 points for Master's.

Gorauskas, who scored all of his points in the first half, also had eight rebounds.

The Mustangs also dominated on the boards, outrebounding Walla Walla, 49-22. The Master's also forced 36 turnovers.

John Mosley, no relation to James, had six steals.

Matt Kordik scored 13 points and Doug Leaman added 10 for the Master's.

Kevin McCloskey scored 10 points for Walla Walla, while Rock Braithwaite contributed nine.

"They're great athletes and they're well-coached," Braithwaite said of the Mustangs, who had a 28-5 record and reached the National Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics national tournament for the first time in school history last season.

"I'm glad I had the opportunity to play them."
