SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Stephon Carter scored 16 points, Adam Young added 14 and CS Bakersfield rolled to a 61-52 victory over struggling UTSA on Tuesday night.
Carter and Young grabbed six rebounds apiece for Bakersfield (10-15), and Tyrone White chipped in 12 points. Bakersfield was 19 of 21 from the free-throw line.
Michael Hale III scored 18 points to lead UTSA (5-19), which lost its sixth straight game. Western Athletic Conference scoring leader Kannon Burrage added 10 points. UTSA shot just 33 percent from the floor.
