STANFORD, Calif. — Josh Owens scored the go-ahead basket on a left-handed tip-in with 29 seconds left and Stanford stunned No. 17 Washington 58-56 on Thursday night to stay unbeaten in Maples Pavilion this season.

Scott Suggs missed a baseline 3-pointer moments later for Washington after he knocked down a tying 3 with 1:08 left. Stanford’s Jeremy Green was whistled for a foul against Justin Holiday on the rebound, but Holiday missed both free throws with 2.5 seconds on the clock.

The Huskies (12-4, 4-1 Pac-10) tied up Dwight Powell on the rebound, giving them the ball back for one final try. Holiday missed a long jumper from the right wing as the buzzer sounded.

Owens had 14 points and Green added 12 for Stanford (10-5, 3-1) in the biggest victory yet for third-year coach Johnny Dawkins. It was the Cardinal’s first game against a ranked opponent this season.
