Tyrell Terry continued his hot shooting for Stanford on Thursday, as the undefeated Cardinal overwhelmed visiting William & Mary 81-50 in non-conference men’s basketball before an announced crowd of 2,502 at Maples Pavilion.

Terry was 8 of 11 shooting overall, 5 of 7 behind the arc, and finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and three assists. Oscar da Silva and Daejon Davis each added 14 points for the Cardinal (6-0). Da Silva was 5 of 8 from the floor, and Davis made 8 of 11 field goals (2 of 2 3-pointers).

Terry was averaging 14.0 points per game going into Thursday’s game and leads the Cardinal with 3.4 assists per game.

This is the first time Stanford opened a season with six wins since 2008-09.

Andy Van Vliet led William & Mary (4-2) with 11 points, with Quinn Blair adding 10 points. Nathan Knight, who netted 30 points against Oklahoma, was held to 2 of 4 field goals and five rebounds.

Overall, the Cardinal shot 55 percent (26 of 47 field goals, including 8 of 16 3-pointers), and made 21 of 30 free throws. Stanford outrebounded the Tribe 39-25.

Stanford held the Tribe scoreless for a 4:26 stretch in the first half and closed out the half with an 8-2 run, building a 39-25 halftime lead. The Cardinal outscored William & Mary 49-25 in the second half.

Going into Thursday’s game, the Tribe matched a school record with three straight road wins. W&M started 4-0 for the first time in 27 years, and Dane Fischer is the first Tribe coach to win his first four games since 1943-44.

The Cardinal hit the road next week, when they travel to the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City, meeting Oklahoma on Monday.
