Soares, one of six Mustangs scoring in double figures, came off the bench and connected on all seven of his field-goal attempts. Andy Thompson, Doug Leaman and Mike Penberthy each scored 13 points for the Mustangs. James Mosley and Emeka Okenwa added 10 each.
Chico State (4-8) was led by Tony Prescott, who scored a game-high 22 points.
The Master’s (13-3) had a seven-game winning streak snapped Wednesday night with a loss in the semifinals to Cal State Bakersfield, the defending NCAA Division II champion.
