STANFORD, Calif. (AP) – Chasson Randle scored 17 points, Josh Huestis had 14 points and 13 rebounds, and Stanford stunned 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 (13-8, 4-4 Pac-12) 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 (18-3, 7-1), 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.
Oregon’s 22 first-half points were the fewest by the Ducks in any half this season. UO’s previous low was 25 against Nevada on New Year’s Eve where the Ducks led 25-14. Oregon won the game 56-43.
Oregon’s biggest deficit at halftime before trailing by 13 was 10 points (39-29) in a 68-61 win over Washington State.
The Ducks have trailed in four of their eight Pac-12 games at halftime. The Ducks came back to beat Oregon State, UCLA and Washington State the in the first three games.
Two Oregon starters (E.J. Singler and Johnathan Loyd) were held scoreless in the first half.
Oregon’s biggest deficit before tonight was 19 points in the first half of a 77-66 loss to Cincinnati in Las Vegas in November. UO trailed by as many as 24 against Stanford.
