Box Score

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Justin Davis made his first nine shots on the way to 21 points, and No. 2 Stanford stayed unbeaten with a 67-52 victory over UCLA on Thursday night.

Josh Childress started for the first time this season for the Cardinal, one of two undefeated Division I teams left in the country along with third-ranked Saint Joseph's. Childress came off the bench in five games as he regained his strength following a foot injury that sidelined him for the first nine games.

A preseason All-America candidate, the 6-foot-8 forward received a warm welcome from the raucous sellout crowd of 7,391 at Maples Pavilion. He scored 14 points, including three 3-pointers and a powerful dunk on an alley-oop from Rob Little late in the first half as the Cardinal built a 24-point lead. Childress also added six rebounds, three assists, two blocked shots and two steals in 32 minutes.

Stanford (15-0, 6-0 Pac-10) has matched the fourth-best winning streak in school history and is chasing the school record of 20 straight victories to start the 2000-01 season.

Dijon Thompson scored 10 of his 15 points in the second half for UCLA (9-5, 5-2), which lost its first conference game last weekend to Arizona but seemed to have the size and speed to keep up with the Cardinal. The Bruins didn't last long.

Stanford, picked No. 1 on 24 ballots in this week's AP poll, has matched its highest ranking since the end of the 2000-01 season and beat UCLA for the 12th time in the last 16 meetings.

Matt Lottich had 10 points, four assists and two blocks for the Cardinal, who shot 46.6 percent and held a 36-25 rebounding advantage.

Davis, who went 10-for-11, didn't miss until trying an acrobatic putback on a miss by Chris Hernandez with 11:07 left.

Stanford started the game 3-for-11 but kept the Bruins off the boards and forced UCLA into four quick turnovers. The Bruins shot 36 percent (9-for-25) in the first half, and Stanford used its transition game to take a 42-21 halftime lead.

The Cardinal held a 20-9 rebounding edge and used a 15-3 run to break the game open.
