Cougars Can't Send Stanford Packing

Posted:

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Anthony Brown scored a career-high 30 points and went 10 of 11 from the free-throw line to help Stanford beat Washington State 69-56 on Saturday.

Chasson Randle scored 14 points and made 5 of 6 free throws late in the second half as Stanford (16-8, 7-5 Pac-12) rebounded from a loss Wednesday against Washington.

Que Johnson had 14 points and four 3-pointers, and DaVonté Lacy had 13 points. Lacy was well below his scoring average of 19.8 points per game as Washington State (9-16, 2-11) dropped its fourth straight.

Stanford jumped on Washington State from the opening tip and never trailed in the game. The Cardinal came out with a quick 14-3 lead.

Brown lit up the Cougars for 20 first-half points and came up a perfect 6 of 6 from the field and 4 of 4 from the 3-point line. The Cardinal shot 63 percent in the half.

The Cougars were plagued once again by a series of scoring droughts. Johnson hit a 3 to cut the Cougars deficit to 19-14 at the 11:22 mark, but Washington State then went 6 minutes without a basket. Stanford went on a 9-0 run to stretch the lead and end the half up 39-24.

Stanford started the second just 1 of 10 from the field while Washington State cut the deficit to 49-44 at 9:17, but that would be as close as the Cougars would come.

The Cardinal finished off Washington State by going 9 of 12 from the free-throw line the final 4 minutes of the game. Washington State went 9 of 29 from the field in the second half, and 4 of 20 from behind the arc.

Stanford scored 17 points off nine Washington State turnovers and outscored the Cougars 20-12 in the paint.
