Huskies Can’t Stop Randle, Fall To Stanford
(1090 The Fan) — Chasson Randle scored a game-high 33 points as Stanford upended Washington 79-67, Saturday night.
The junior guard was too much to handle for Washington guards Nigel Williams-Goss, Andrew Andrews and C.J. Wilcox. Randle finished 11-for-15 from the field and 10-for-13 from the free-throw line.
The Cardinal utilized a mini 14-6 run midway through the first half to take control of the game 23-15 with 9:08 remaining. Washington never got closer than three points after that.
Stanford (12-5, 3-2) out shot Washington (11-8, 3-3) 43 to 25 percent from 3-point range, as the Huskies finished just 5-for-20 from beyond the arc.
The Cardinal also got solid production from Dwight Powell (17 points) and Josh Huestis who scored 13 points in support of Randle.
Williams-Goss scored 17 points and Shawn Kemp Jr. finished with 13 points and six rebounds off the bench to give the Huskies a lift. Wilcox, meanwhile, had a season low nine points on 4-for-13 shooting.
It was an unsuccessful week in the Bay Area for the Huskies who were looking to build off of a 3-1 Pac-12 conference start. Instead the team stumbles home after double-digit losses to Cal and Stanford.
Washington will play host to Oregon and Oregon St. next week.
