Texas Tech 74, CS Bakersfield 58

Jordan Tolbert scored 27 points, all from the paint and

free-throw line, to lead Texas Tech past Cal State Bakersfield

74-58 on Tuesday night.

Tolbert, a freshman, has scored at least 20 points in his last

four games, and this one matched his highest point total of the

season.

With Texas Tech leading 55-50, Cal State Bakersfield’s Donald

Johnson was called for a technical foul after he appeared to taunt

after a breakaway dunk. The Red Raiders (6-5) converted the

resulting free throws and possession, and finished the game on a

19-8 run.

Bakersfield (6-7) crept within six, but Terran Petteway’s

3-pointer with 5:28 left took the air out of the visiting

Roadrunners.

Stephon Carter led the Roadrunners with 17 points. Johnson

scored 13, and Issiah Grayson had 12 points for Bakersfield.

Bean Willis scored 15 for the Red Raiders, and Robert

Lewandowski tallied 10 points.
