BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Tyrone White came off the bench to score 28 points -- far and away his career high -- and set several other personal bests Tuesday, helping Cal State-Bakersfield hold off NAIA program Westmont 77-74 for the Roadrunners' first win of the season.
White, a senior, was 8 of 13 from the field, including 7 of 10 on 3-pointers; he came in having never made more than six field goals or scored more than 17 points in a game. He added eight rebounds, also a career best.
Brandon Barnes chipped in 24 points, one short of his own career high, for the Roadrunners (1-4). Preston Branson scored 22 points to lead the Warriors, while Christopher Miller had 17 points and 10 rebounds.
Bakersfield took the lead for good, 69-67, on Barnes' 3-pointer with 1:24 to play, then hit just enough free throws down the stretch to secure the victory.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
