PALO ALTO — Back at home, the Stanford Cardinal looked to get back into the win column after losing four games straight at home and on the road. The well-respected Montana Grizzlies traveled to Maples Pavilion with the hopes of handing the Cardinal another loss. Stanford comes into this game looking to play at an efficient level as they are still short handed due to injuries and only declared eight men for the game.

Cardinal Star forward Reid Travis was a monster as he poured in 20 points and snagged nine rebounds. He was dominant around the hoop, taking advantage of the good ball movement. He kept Stanford in the game early when things were not looking pretty.

Freshman Daejon Davis from Seattle also had a solid game for the Cardinal. He showed of his agility, speed, and versatility slicing to the basket. He scored 17 points with four assists and five rebounds. He’s another young piece that has shown a high level of talent, like the Australian-born Isaac White, that Stanford acquired this past offseason.

Stanford would close the game out with dominance, going on a 26-4 run over the last 10 minutes of the game. Their next game is against Long Beach State in Southern California where they will hope to improve on this impressive bounce back game.

Final: Stanford def. Montana 70-54
