    BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Josh Akognon scored 32 points, including six 3s, to lead Cal State Fullerton past Cal State Bakersfield 78-73 Tuesday.

    The Titans (14-15) allowed their 14-point halftime lead trimmed to three points before hitting 6-of-8 free throws in the final 50 seconds to seal the win.

    Terrence Johns led the Roadrunners with 16 points. Trent Blakley and Santwon Lantunde added 15 apiece.

    Trailing 43-29 at the break, Bakersfield (8-21) opened the second half with an 8-0 run. Akognon answered with five straight points, and a pair of free throws by Jacques Streeter pushed the Fullerton lead to 50-37.

    Bakersfield pulled within 73-70 on a pair of free throws by Donavan Bragg, but the Titans followed with five consecutive makes from the charity stripe.
