The Stanford Cardinal have had it rolling as of late, but ran into a buzzsaw in the form of the Oregon Ducks; well, the Ducks’ Devoe Joseph actually. Joseph would drop 30 big ones on the Cardinal, ensuring a 78-67 Ducks wins.
Joseph was 9-15 from the floor, including 5-7 from downtown, leading all scorers in the game this evening. Stanford’s Josh Owens dropped 19, while Aaron Bright added 14, but it wouldn’t be enough as the Ducks proved to be too much tonight at Matthew Knight Arena.
Oregon had just a two point lead at the half, but exploded in the second for 44 points, blowing past Stanford in the process. The Cardinal also bailed Oregon out by sending them to the line 26 times, compared to the nine free throws taken for the Card.
With the loss the Cardinal move to 12-3 on the year, and 2-1 in Pac-12 play.
