PALO ALTO–The Stanford Cardinal met the Arizona State Sun Devils Thursday night at Maples Pavilion. The visiting Sun Devils came to Stanford with a record of 15-8 overall, and 6-4 in the Conference. ASU is the only Pac-12 team to make the NCAAs the last two seasons. ASU has won five of the last six games. The Cardinal, on the other hand, has lost five of the last six and their record coming into the game was 16-7.

ASU led for most of the game. Stanford’s offense came to life late in the second half to close the gap to just three points. The Sun Devils held on to win 74-69.

The Cardinal’s best player, Oscar Da Silva, who suffered a head injury in the game against Colorado last Saturday, was not available. Stanford’s head coach Jerod Haase started sophomore Lukas Kisunas in his place. The Cardinal fell behind 7-0 in the early going.

Spencer Jones knocked down a couple of threes to make it 7-6. The Sun Devils, taking advantage of Stanford turnovers increased the lead to 20-13. James Keefe and Jaiden Delaire each made a bucket to make it 20-17. It was at this point that ASU went on an 11-0 run. The Cardinal fought back as Daejon Davis, Delaire, and Tyrell Terry made plays to cut the deficit to seven 36-29 at the end of the first half of play.

In the second half, ASU was able to keep the Cardinal at bay for most of the period. The Cardinal made an 8-1 run to come within four 50-46. The Cardinal’s point guard Tyrell Terry started to get his game coming as he led the charge. ASU didn’t cave.

ASU’s Remy Martin, and I am not making his name up, made two key baskets to give ASU an eleven-point lead 68-57.  The Cardinal’s James Keefe and Tyrell Terry led the team on another run to close the gap to three 68-65 with 2:07 left to play.

It appeared the referees missed a call when Terry was bumped and the ball went out of bounds. The Cardinal had another opportunity to get closer but they turned the ball over to ASU when the inbound pass was knocked out of bounds.

Remy Martin followed with a bucket to make it 70-65 with about 40 seconds left in the game. James Keefe scored for Stanford and was fouled on the play. Keefe missed the free throw. Rob Edwards made two free throws, and Martin made another two-point shot to put ASU ahead 74-67. Tyrell Terry scored the last basket for Stanford. Time ran out, and the Cardinal dropped its sixth game in the previous seven 74-69.

Game Notes and Stats- With the loss, Stanford’s record drops to 16-8 overall and 5-6 in the Pac-12. Arizona improves to 16-8 overall, and 7-4 in the conference.

Tyrell Terry led the Cardinal with 24 points. Jaiden Delaire had 11, Spencer Jones nine, James Keefe, nine, and Bryce Wills eight. Stanford shot 52% from the floor. They made six threes in 21 tries.

ASU was led by Remy Martin’s 24 points. Alonzo Verge had 19, and Kimani Lawrence kicked in with 11. The Sun Devils shot 55% from the floor. They connected on five threes. They out rebounded the Cardinal 30-21. Each team committed 20 turnovers.
