BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Stephon Carter had 20 points to lead all five Cal State Bakersfield starters scoring in double figures in an 85-52 victory against UTSA on Saturday night.
In a matchup of Roadrunners, Javonte Maynor scored 17 points, Brandon Barnes 13 and Tyrone White and Adam Young 11 each for Cal State Bakersfield (2-5), which relied heavily on its first five. Maynor and White played 30 minutes, Barnes, Young and Carter 28.
Kannon Burrage scored 18 points for UTSA (3-4), which was plagued my mistakes en route to a 54-23 deficit at intermission. In the first half, UTSA shot 37.5 percent (6 of 16) from the floor -- including stretches of 4:10 and 4:15 without scoring -- and committed 20 turnovers, which Cal State Bakersfield turned into 27 points.
UTSA got to closer than 28 in the second half.
Leaving early for the NBA is a risky decision. Some players -- Skal Labissiere, Dejounte Murray -- slid in the draft. Some -- Isaiah Taylor, Troy Williams -- weren't drafted at all.
