STANFORD, Calif. — Chasson Randle made a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 26 points to help Stanford boost their case for an at-large NCAA tournament berth with an 83-74 victory over No. 23 UCLA on Saturday.
Josh Huestis tied a career high with 22 points and Anthony Brown had 18 for the Cardinal (18-8, 9-5 Pac-12), who have won five of six.
This might have been the most impressive of the bunch, coming against a ranked team playing its best basketball of the season. Stanford made 62 percent of its shots, topping 60 percent in a conference game for the first time since exactly 11 years ago against UCLA. Zach LaVine and Norman Powell scored 14 points each and Tony Parker added 13 for the Bruins (21-6, 10-4).
No. 4 Arizona 88, Colorado 61
At Boulder, Colo., freshman Aaron Gordon scored 21 of his season-best 23 points in the second half and Nick Johnson added 20 points as Arizona won at Colorado for the first time since 1973.
It was a rare breather for the Wildcats (25-2, 12-2 Pac-12), who scrapped their way through a series of close games recently, including a two-point loss at Cal and a three-point loss in double-overtime at archrival Arizona State.
Josh Scott led the Buffs with 18 points. His jumper to open the second half made it a four-point game, but the Buffs couldn't get any closer and the Wildcats began to pull away.
