FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Richard Carter scored 18 points and Drake beat Cal State Bakersfield 65-57 in the final round of the Fresno State Classic on Sunday.
Drake (6-1) led at the half 30-22 with the Bulldogs controlling the boards and outscoring CSUB at the free throw line
Drake increased its second half lead to 11 on a Karl Madison 3-pointer with five minutes remaining, but the Roadrunners (5-3) erased that deficit to only 3 points (58-55) over the next two minutes.
