More than two months after Stanford's football team handed Oregon its only loss of the season, the Cardinal (13-8, 4-4 Pac-12) dominated the Ducks from the start for the program's first victory over a top 10 team in almost five years.
scored 12 points and
had six points and nine rebounds in the first conference loss of the season for the Ducks (18-3, 7-1), whose nine-game winning streak also ended. Oregon had matched its highest ranking since March 2007 this week but surely will take a tumble in the AP poll now.
Dwight Powell added 12 points and 13 rebounds, and
finished with 12 points as Stanford built a 25-point lead early in the second half and coasted to the buzzer. Stanford outshot Oregon 52 to 35 percent from the floor. The Cardinal also went 8 of 14 from 3-point range, while the Ducks converted only 4 of 16 from beyond the arc.
Oregon's best start in conference play since finishing 10-0 in the 1925-26 season is over. Once again, the Ducks can thank Stanford for ruining an undefeated run.
The Cardinal football team also outlasted Oregon in November on the way to a Pac-12 title and Rose Bowl victory. Coincidentally,
, who kicked the winning 37-yard field goal in overtime at top-ranked Oregon, and a few teammates stood in the first row of the Stanford student section.
The Cardinal men's basketball team hadn't beaten a ranked opponent since Jan. 13, 2011, when it topped
58-56 at home. The last top 10 team Stanford had upset came when the Cardinal won at
67-65 in overtime on Feb. 2, 2008.
Despite Oregon's strong start, the Ducks entered the game as 2 1/2-point underdogs. In the end the only surprise was that Las Vegas bookmakers didn't make the line even higher.
Stanford followed up its 87-57 win at
on Sunday, its most lopsided league victory in nine years, with another runaway performance.
The only celebration Oregon enjoyed came after Kazemi's two-handed slam in the opening moments. That faded fast when the Oregon forward fell hard going for a rebound on the next defensive possession.
Kazemi, who had concussion in a win against
on Dec. 31, lay on the court holding his head for more than a minute before being helped up by a team trainer. He later returned and showed no effects from the injury.
With Kazemi recovering on the bench, Stanford started its surge.
Randle, Powell, Bright and
each hit a 3-pointer during an 18-2 run that brought the sparse crowd roaring to its feet. The Cardinal clamped down on defense, too, pushed the pace for quick scores to go ahead 20-8 in the first 8 minutes.
Oregon missed its first six shots from beyond the arc and committed 20 turnovers, including three egregious errors just before the break. Stanford scored after each one, part of a quick 6-0 burst capped by Anthony Brown's bank hook that helped the Cardinal carry a 35-22 lead into the locker room.
Stanford started even faster in the second half.
's 3-pointer cut the Cardinal's lead to 10, the Ducks never got closer. Powell started a three-point play with a layup over Singler, then made a runner and another from beyond the arc as the Cardinal gained control for good.
Huestis cleaned up a miss with a putback dunk, and Bright made a jumper and a 3-pointer to put the Cardinal ahead 54-29 with 12:08 remaining to put the game out of reach.
Stanford students taunted Oregon in the final minutes with chants of ''overrated.''
