Cabelllo.jpgSANTA CLARITA, Calif. – The Lady Mustang basketball program is proud to announce the signing of Bianca Cubello, from Riverside, California.

"I'm excited about going to The Master’s College because I know that this is the school for me,” commented Cubello.  “I want to flourish not only as a basketball player but as a person in general."

Cubello, a recent graduate of Jurupa Valley High School, enters The Master’s College with a resume consisting of All-River Valley League MVP honors, Jurupa Valley’s Best Sportsmanship Award, and the team captain post for the Jaguars in 2012-13.

Sixth-year head coach Dan Waldeck anticipates Cubello’s athleticism, size, and post presence to be a key addition to the Lady Mustangs for the 2013-14 campaign.

“Bianca has all the tools to be a great player,” assessed Waldeck.  “Her length and athletic ability will add depth in our frontcourt. God has gifted her with great touch around the rim and a jumper that extends all the way to the three-point line.  Her passion for the Lord is something that is growing daily, and to see her heartbeat to give all she has for the Lord’s glory makes her a perfect addition for us.”

Off the court, the newest addition to the Lady Mustangs plans to major in Business Administration.

TMC finished third in the Golden State Athletic Conference and earned a No. 12 postseason ranking in the NAIA.  A 25-5 regular season record qualified the Lady Mustangs for the 33rd annual NAIA Division I Women’s Basketball National Tournament where they were knocked out in the first round by Carroll College of Montana.

The Lady Mustangs are slated to open their season October 30 in an exhibition game against Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. The squad’s first home appearance, however, will be against Oregon Tech on November 9 in the newly-renovated Bross Gymnasium.
