Chris Hernandez scored eight of his career-high 37 points in the final 3 1/2 minutes while carrying Stanford to its sixth straight victory over UCLA, 78-65 on Sunday in Stanford, Calif.

Hernandez had the best game of his three seasons at Stanford (15-9, 9-5 Pac-10), hitting five 3-pointers and going 13 for 22 overall with several tough baskets during the Cardinal’s two lengthy runs spanning halftime. His accuracy and energy was the difference in Stanford’s third straight victory overall.

Matt Haryasz and Fred Washington scored 12 points apiece for Stanford, which finished up a home sweep of the Los Angeles schools and took a comfortable hold on third place in the conference standings, 1 1/2 games ahead of UCLA with a tiebreaker edge over the Bruins.

Dijon Thompson had 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Bruins (14-9, 8-7), who have lost to all three teams ahead of them in the conference standings over the past five games.

Freshman Jordan Farmar had 16 points and seven assists for UCLA, which had little of the offensive spark it showed in a win over California on Thursday, frequently settling for poor shots. Farmar struggled in his matchup with Hernandez, making seven turnovers and failing to stay with the Stanford junior on defense.
