STANFORD, Calif. – Chasson Randle and the Stanford Cardinal showed how much they have grown as a team since last month’s blowout loss at UCLA.
Randle made a career-high seven three-pointers and scored 26 points to help Stanford boost its case for an at-large NCAA tournament berth with an 83-74 victory over the 23rd-ranked Bruins on Saturday.
Josh Huestis tied a career high with 22 points for the Cardinal (18-8 overall, 9-5 Pac-12), which has won five of six.
Freshman Zach LaVine, a Bothell High graduate, and Norman Powell scored 14 points each for UCLA (21-6, 10-4). LaVine is averaging 10.6 points on 47.5 percent shooting for the Bruins, who are second to Arizona in the conference race.
