HONOLULU (AP) Jovaughn Love scored 17 points and Marcel Mosley added 15 as Arkansas-Pine Bluff held off Cal State Bakersfield 56-49 in the Rainbow Classic Monday night.

Love, a freshman, and Mosley each scored in double figures for the third-straight game for the Golden Lions (1-2).

Javonte Maynor paced the Roadrunners (0-3) with 17 points on five 3-pointers and Kevin Mays added 15 with 11 rebounds. Bakersfield opened the Hawaii tournament with a 100-99 four-overtime loss to High Point, the program's longest game since 1989.
