Britton Williams led the Roadrunners (3-6) with 18 points. Stephon Carter scored 17 points and Brandon Barnes and Javante Maynor each scored 10 for Bakersfield.

The game was delayed 30 minutes due to a blizzard.

Mitch Wilmer and Aaron Anderson led North Dakota(1-6) with 12 points apiece. North Dakota had a better shooting percentage from outside, 41 percent to 40 percent, but the Bison attempted 23 more shots and had nine more baskets.
