Stanford rocks 10th-ranked Oregon

THURSDAY, JAN. 31, 2013

Chasson Randle scored 17 points, Josh Huestis had 14 points and 13 rebounds, and Stanford stunned visiting Oregon on the big stage again by routing the 10th-ranked Ducks 76-52 Wednesday night.

More than two months after Stanford’s football team handed Oregon its only loss of the season, the Cardinal dominated the Ducks from the start for the program’s first victory over a top 10 team in almost five years.

Carlos Emory scored 12 points and Arsalan Kazemi had six points and nine rebounds in the first conference loss of the season for the Ducks, whose nine-game winning streak also ended. Oregon had matched its highest ranking since March 2007 this week but surely will take a tumble in the AP poll now.

USC 75, UCLA 71 (OT): Jio Fontan and Aaron Fuller scored 15 points each and the Trojans defeated the host Bruins, ending a four-game skid against their crosstown rival.

Eric Wise added 12 points and 11 rebounds, J.T. Terrell and Byron Wesley each had 10 points for USC, which held the Bruins to 38 percent shooting while snapping a two-game losing streak.

The Trojans improved to 2-3 under interim coach Bob Cantu.

UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad scored 22 points but missed two 3-pointers in the final 1:14 of overtime. The Bruins were 2 of 19 from 3-point range.

UCLA has dropped three of its last four.
