STANFORD, Calif. – Freshman guard Daejon Davis, a graduate of Garfield High School in Seattle, drew a foul and made two free throws with 10 seconds left to help Stanford edge Washington State 86-84 in a Pac-12 basketball game Saturday.

“He did a lot nice things, but honestly it was not one of his better games,” Stanford coach Jerod Haase said of Davis. “But I wanted the ball in his hands and I wanted him to make a play.”

Reid Travis scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Cardinal (16-13 overall, 10-6 Pac-12), which has won three in a row. KZ Okpala added 20 points, one shy of his season high.

Robert Franks scored 19 points to lead the Cougars (11-17, 3-13), who have lost four straight to Stanford and 11 of 14 overall.

Malachi Flynn and Drick Bernstine each added 16 points. Milan Acquaah had 10 points, all in the first half, for WSU.

Flynn’s three-point attempt just before the buzzer was short.

Franks dunked with 36 seconds left to tie the score at 84. Flynn led a WSU surge after the Cougars fell behind 69-55 midway through the second half.

The Cougars shot 56.7 percent from the field.

“The last four games, we’ve been a different team,” WSU coach Ernie Kent said. “We’ve played tough, we played smart.”
