STANFORD, Calif. - Norman Powell and Zach LaVine each scored 14 points as UCLA dropped an 83-74 decision at Stanford on Saturday afternoon, snapping the Bruins’ four-game winning streak.
Chasson Randle scored a game-high 26 points on 8 of 13 shooting from the field, making 7 of 10 three-point attempts for Stanford (18-8, 9-5 Pac-12).
Josh Huestis added 22 points and five blocks for the Cardinal, who earned their fourth victory against UCLA (21-6, 10-4 Pac-12) in the last 19 meetings between the two Pac-12 programs.
Stanford led UCLA throughout the contest, opening a 38-30 lead by halftime and pushing its advantage to as many as 14 points with 13:23 left in the game. UCLA trailed 58-44 before using a 13-2 scoring run to reduce Stanford’s cushion to 60-57 at the 9:53 mark.
The Cardinal answered with consecutive three-pointers from Anthony Brown and Randle, pushing Stanford’s lead to 66-57 at the 8:15 mark. An ensuing layup from Brown gave the Cardinal a 68-57 cushion.
UCLA did not back down, cutting Stanford’s 11-point advantage to just four points – 72-68 – with 2:50 left in the game. LaVine made a three-pointer at the 3:44 mark and was fouled on a three-point attempt at the 2:50 mark, sinking all three free throw attempts.
The Bruins never closed the gap to fewer than four points. Stanford made six of its final eight free throw shots in the game’s final 1:20 to secure the victory.
Saturday's loss marked the first game this season in which both Jordan Adams (eight points) and Kyle Anderson (six points) were limited to fewer than 10 points. Adams and Anderson were both held to fewer than 10 points in just two games last season (played in 33 games together).
UCLA will return to action against Oregon on Thursday, Feb. 27, in Pauley Pavilion. Game time is 8 p.m. (PT).
