Stanford vs. Oregon State: Cardinal Roll Beavers To Split Oregon Homestand

The Stanford Cardinal rebounded from a stunning loss to Oregon by handling Oregon State 70-56. A few days after losing to Oregon at Maples Pavilion for the first time in a quarter century, the Cardinal bounced back to improve to 4-5 in the Pac-10. Stanford was led by freshman Anthony Brown’s 21 points, giving him the most points by a Cardinal freshman in two years. Josh Owens contributed 14 points for the Cardinal.

Stanford jumped out to a 13-2 lead but Oregon State rumbled back to take a late first half lead. However, after Anthony Brown hit a three with :59 left in the half to give Stanford a 31-30 lead, the Cardinal never lost their lead.

The Cardinal now sit at 4-5 in conference play and are tied for sixth place with USC. Stanford hosts Arizona and then Arizona State before heading up to Washington for a two-game road trip. At 11-9 and with an RPI of 141, the Cardinal don’t really have a shot at an at-large bid, barring a long unbeaten streak to finish the regular season. However, the conference tournament remains in play and each win gives Stanford better positioning.
