For the first time in 15 years, Stanford has won a men’s basketball game at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles.

Tyrell Terry scored a career-high 24 points for the Cardinal in their 74-59 Pac-12 victory over UCLA Wednesday. It was Stanford’s first win over the Bruins at Pauley since 2003-04, and its first conference road win of the season.

Terry was 6 of 13 from the field, including 4 of 7 on 3-pointers. He was also 8 of 10 at the free throw line.

Spencer Jones added 14 points for the Cardinal (15-2 overall, 4-0 Pac-12), which has won three straight conference games, and eight of their last nine.

Leading the Bruins was Jaime Jaquez Jr. with 15 points, followed by Jalen Hill with 14 points and 12 rebounds. The Bruins (8-9, 1-3) are in the midst of their second three-game losing streak of the season.

UCLA had won 13 straight home games against Stanford since 2005-06.

After the Bruins closed to within one point early in the second half, Stanford went on a 12-2 run to go up 50-39.

The Cardinal’s Oscar da Silva – who was averaging 16.5 points – scored only six points, plagued by four personal fouls.

Stanford opened the game with an 18-9 run, connecting on 7 of 10 shots while the Bruins missed seven of their first 10 attempts.

But UCLA put together runs of 9-0 and 11-0 to take its first lead at 29-22. At one point during the 20-4 scoring run, the Bruins had seven different players score.

The Cardinal regrouped and forged an 11-2 run to end the first half leading 33-31.

Stanford shot 51 percent (24-47), including 8-17 on 3-pointers. UCLA made 21 of 53 field goals (39.6 percent) and was 5 of 16 behind the arc.

Stanford continues its road trip on Saturday, visiting Southern California.
