BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Jordan Weirick and Ramell Taylor came off the bench in Southern Utah's two exhibition games and the season-opening loss to Cal Baptist on Monday night but both got starts on Wednesday.
Both made the most of their opportunity.
Weirick led the team with 17 points and eight rebounds while Taylor added 16 points and seven boards as the Thunderbirds evened their record at 1-1 with a 66-58 win at Cal State Bakersfield.
"We had a great team effort tonight," SUU coach Roger Reid said.
It was the Thunderbirds' first win on the road since a 74-69 triumph at North Dakota State late in the 2008-09 season.
