STANFORD, Calif. – Reid Travis scored 23 of his career-high 33 points in the first half as Stanford jumped to an early lead on the way to a 94-78 victory over Washington on Thursday night.

Dorian Pickens added 20 points as the Cardinal (15-13, 9-6 Pac-12) kept their postseason hopes alive. Michael Humphrey added 15 points before fouling out in the final six minutes and Oscar Da Silva scored 14.

Travis, who also had nine rebounds, was 11 of 17 from the floor and also from the foul line.

Jaylen Nowell scored 18 points to lead the Huskies (18-10, 8-7 Pac-12), who lost their fourth straight to Stanford and fell to 2-6 in their last eight games.

Noah Dickerson added 14 points and 13 rebounds for Washington, his fifth double-double in his past seven games. Nahziah Carter added 17.

Stanford grabbed a 16-4 advantage in the first six minutes and it never got much better for the Huskies, who missed their first 10 3-point attempts before making 6 of 10.

Stanford led at halftime 48-26 and carried a double-digit lead for most of the game, extending it to 24 points early in the second half.

Seattle native Daejon Davis was held without a shot from the field but did record nine assists. He had 16 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in Seattle. Davis originally committed to Washington but de-committed when then-coach Lorenzo Romar was fired.

Washington’s Matisse Thybulle has already set the single-season school record for steals. Now he’s taking aim at being the national leader. He had three steals against Stanford and moved one ahead of West Virginia’s Jevon Carter for the national lead.
