Thanks to a big day from Oscar da Silva, Stanford snapped its three-game Pac-12 losing streak in resounding fashion, as the Cardinal upset No. 11 Oregon 70-60 Saturday at Maples Pavilion.

It was a career day for da Silva, who bagged 27 points and 15 rebounds — 17 of his points and 11 of his rebounds came in the second half. Tyrell Terry added 12 points for the Cardinal (16-5 overall, 5-3 Pac-12).

Da Silva scored 20 or more points for the sixth time this season and the 10th time in his career. His effort against the Ducks was his sixth career double-double.

Oregon (18-5 overall, 7-3 Pac-12) was leading 44-35 with 14:30 to play, then Stanford held the Ducks without a field goal over the next 10 minutes. The Cardinal went on a 15-1 run, including Terry’s go-ahead 3-pointer, to surge ahead 59-50.

The Ducks were held to 6 of 30 field goal shooting in the second half, and turned in a season-low 32.8 percent shot percentage. Oregon was also outrebounded for the fifth time in its last six games.

Stanford, meanwhile, shot 50 percent from the field and was 13 of 17 at the foul line in the second half.

Will Richardson led Oregon with 17 points. Payton Pritchard was next for the Ducks with 16 points, and Chris Duarte had 14. Pritchard also notched his 200th career steal, second all-time in Oregon history.

The Cardinal hit the road next week, traviling to Utah on Thursday.

A tale of two halves: USC prevails over Cardinal in OT 82-78 photo: The USC Trojan’s Nick Rakocevic (31) is surrounded by the Stanford Cardinals’ Jaiden Declaire (11) and Oscar Da Silva (13) on Saturday night at USC

For the first 20 minutes, it was all Stanford in its Pac-12 men’s basketball game against Southern California. The last 20 minutes belonged to the Trojans.

Elijah Weaver made a 3-pointer to force overtime, as the Trojans rallied from a 21-point deficit to pull out an 82-78 win over the visiting Cardinal Saturday in Los Angeles.

The victory pulled the Trojans into a tie with Stanford for first place in the conference. It was USC’s ninth win in their last 10 games; they’re 8-1 at home this season.

Weaver also scored eight of his 13 points in overtime. Oneyka Okongwu scored 22 points to lead USC (15-3 overall, 4-1 Pac-12), followed by Jonah Mathews with 19 points and 11 from Ethan Anderson.

Okongwu also grabbed nine rebounds, as the Trojans held a 38-31 edge on the glass.

Oscar da Silva led the Cardinal with 21 points, and Spencer Jones was next with 18, followed by Tyrell Terry with 16 in Stanford’s first conference loss of the season.

Stanford (15-3, 4-1) led 69-64 with 33 seconds remaining in the second half after the Cardinal’s Lukas Kisunas converted a layup. USC responded with a layup by Okongwu with 11 seconds to play. After Stanford’s Daejon Davis committed a turnover on the inbound pass, Weaver hit an off-balance 3-pointer while being fouled by Davis.

Weaver didn’t get the rare four-point play, missing the free throw that would have given USC the lead in regulation.

In the opening 20 minutes, Stanford dominated, using a 7-0 run to take a 45-25 halftime lead. The Cardinal was 6 of 10 from behind the arc in the first half.

USC used a 15-2 run early in the second half to pull within 48-40. The Cardinal responded with a 9-2 run to go back up at 57-42 midway through the second half.

The Trojans launched another run, 12-1 burst to pull within 60-56 with 6:25 to play. An Anderson layup pulled USC to within 62-60 at 4:47 and picked up the pace defensively, forcing 17 Cardinal turnovers.

Stanford lost despite shooting 49 percent from the field (USC shot 40 percent).

The Cardinal take an eight-day break before visiting Cal on Jan. 26.

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.

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.

Stanford continued its dominance over Washington State in Pac-12 men’s basketball on Saturday, as the Cardinal romped to an 88-62 win over the visiting Cougars at Maples Pavilion.

Freshman Tyrell Terry popped in a season-high 22 points and grabbed six rebounds, as the Cardinal (14-2 overall, 3-0 Pac-12) beat WSU for seventh time in eight meetings. The Cougars have lost three of four games to open league play after a six-game nonconference winning streak.

Washington State last won at Stanford in 2011, and the Cougars’ losing streak against the Cardinal goes back to Jan. 31, 2015, when WSU edged Stanford 89-88 in Pullman, Wash.

Carlos da Silva added 15 points – all in the first half – and Isaac White scored 11 points while Bryce Wills chipped in with 10. Though da Silva was 7 of 8 from the field, he didn’t see much action in the second half due to foul trouble.

Isaac Bonton led the Cougars (10-7, 1-3) with 15 points; it was Bonton’s sixth straight game of double-figure scoring. Daron Henson was next for WSU with 12 points, including 4 of 6 on 3-pointers, and Jeff Pollard pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds to go with eight points.

WSU’s CJ Elleby was held to single-digit scoring for the second time this season with a season-low six points. Elleby missed his first seven shots.

Stanford jumped to a 46-18 halftime lead, eventually building a 59-26 lead early in the second half. The 18 points allowed in the first half was the Cardinal’s second-best effort of the season, next to the 16 points allowed to Maryland-Eastern Shore in November.

The Cardinal hit the road on Wednesday, traveling to UCLA. Next Saturday, Washington State will retire Klay Thompson’s No. 1 jersey when UCLA visits Pullman. Thompson, a starter on three NBA championship teams with Golden State, is the Cougars’ second all-time scoring leader (1,756 points).
