Leaky Roof Stops Game in Bakersfield

A basketball game between Cal State Bakersfield and Sheldon-Jackson College (Alaska) was stopped with 9:44 left in the second half Friday night because of a leaky roof at the Cal State Bakersfield Activities Center.

The roof started leaking at halftime when Bakersfield led, 51-18, in the first round of the Bakersfield tournament. Referee Jim Stupin called the game with Bakersfield leading, 77-30, because of excessive water on the floor.

Bakersfield will play Cal State Stanislaus, an 86-61 winner over Keene State (N.H.), tonight for the tournament championship.
