Carter helps CSUB cruise to 114-66 win over Pacifica

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

Eight of Cal State Bakersfield's 10 players scored in double figures Saturday as the Roadrunners posted a 114-66 win over Pacifica in CSUB's final home men's basketball game of the season.

Stephon Carter, who is CSUB's all-time career scoring leader, had 20 points and 11 rebounds on 8-of-14 shooting. Fellow seniors Adam Young (14 points) and Tyrone White (11 points) also scored in double figures.

Corey Hall added a CSUB career-high 17 points, going 7-of-9 from the field, and had 13 rebounds. Kregg Jones (10 points) and Dee Wallace (nine points) had their season-high scoring games for CSUB (12-16).

Pacifica (0-16) is a first-year athletic program that is not affiilated with either the NCAA or NAIA. CSUB's biggest lead was 112-61.

The game set several Division I single-game records for the Roadrunners: Most points, field goals made (44), field goals attempted (84), rebounds (50), assists (30). It was CSUB's first 100-point game as a Division I program.

The 114 points were the second-highest in CSUB's history, behind only the 118 against La Verne in 1995.

CSUB has two road games remaining, March 6 at Seattle and March 9 at Utah Valley.

"It's kind of difficult when you're so much better than the other team to keep the guys focused but what I liked about it was that we had 30 assists which means guys were playing unselfish," said CSUB coach Rod Barnes in a press release. "Overall it was a good win for us. Guys had fun, we accomplished what we needed to accomplish and we'll get back to work on Monday and try to get ready for our last two games."
