With their season-opening game four days away, the UAA men's basketball team lost its second straight exhibition game, this time falling 90-78 Monday to an NAIA team in Santa Clarita, Calif.

The red-shot Mustangs of The Master's College outshot and outrebounded the Seawolves, who lost for the second time in three days. On Saturday, UAA dropped a 99-68 decision to Division I BYU in Utah.

The Master's buried 10 of 23 shots from 3-point range, held a 43-37 edge on the boards and got 30 points from guard Derrick Fain, who hit four of seven shots from long range.

UAA managed to sink 25 percent of its 3-pointers, hitting seven of 28.

Brian McGill, a sophomore point guard who transferred to UAA from Western Oregon, had 18 points and four assists, and Colton Lauwers, a senior guard from Anchorage, supplied 14 points, four assists and a team-high seven rebounds.

Christian Leckband scored 12 points for UAA, and Teancum Stafford and Brad Mears, both juniors, tallied eight points and five rebounds apiece.

UAA led 12-11 after five minutes when Stafford threw down a fast-break dunk, but the Mustangs took charge with an 11-0 run. The Master's hit seven of 12 3-pointers in the first half to grab a 46-35 halftime lead.

The Seawolves will stay in California to prepare for their season-opening game Friday, when they face Lindenwood University of Missouri at the CCA Tip-Off Classic, an NCAA Division II tournament in Anaheim.
