A late Stanford rally, capped by Tyrell Tyler’s 3-pointer with under two minutes remaining in regulation, helped the Cardinal defeat visiting Washington 61-55 Thursday in Pac-12 men’s basketball at Maples Pavilion.

Daejon Davis scored 12 points in the second half, including his game-tying 3, for the Cardinal (13-2 overall, 2-1 Pac-12). Stanford has won six of its last seven games.

On the defensive end, the Cardinal held Washington scoreless over the last 3 minutes and 12 seconds, and outscored the Huskies 26-8 in the final 11 minutes. In addition, Stanford held UW”s Isaiah Stewart to a season-low four points – his first game under 12 points this season.

Stanford stayed in the game with the combined assistance of Spencer Jones, James Keefe and Oscar da Silva. Jones scored eight of his 14 points in the first half, Keefe added seven first-half points and da Silva bagged all 11 of his points in the second half.

Leading the Huskies was Jaden McDaniels, who accomplished his first career double-double with 18 points and 15 rebounds for Washington (11-5, 1-2). Nahziah Carter was next for the Huskies with 16 points.

Oakland native Quade Green was declared academically ineligible by Washington on Thursday. In his place, Elijah Hardy made his first csreer start.

Stanford bounced back from a rough start, as the Cardinal shot 28 percent from the field – 3 of 14 behind the arc – in the first half. Meanwhile, Washington led by as many a 12 before White connected on a 3-pointer to cut Stanford’s deficit to 28-20 at halftime.

Davis underwent concussion protocol after being hit in the eye nearly seven minutes into the first half. He returned just before halftime.

The Cardinal hosts Washington State on Saturday.
