“This (win) means a lot, especially my senior year,” stated senior Chasson Randle. “We had to make sure we put a stamp on this place.  That is three in a row for us up here.”

Stanford not only left their stamp, they muzzled Cal.  The Bears were up 31-26 going into the locker room, then The Cardinal outscored Cal 43-28 in the final period. Cal shot 50-percentfrom three in the first half, but that dropped to 30-percent in the second half.  They only shot 35.5-percent from the field for the game, compared to 48-percent from stanford.

Cal’s leading scorer and third Pac-12, Tyrone Wallace, led the Bears with 14 points and 9 rebounds, but he missed on 16-of-22 including all four from three.  Pac-12 second leading scorer senior guard Chasson Randle led all scorers with 25 points on 8-of-14 from the field and 4-of-6 from the arc.

Stanford defense on Wallace“It was a team effort,” Randle acknowledged about stifling the offensive output of Wallace, the Pac-12 third leading scorer at 18 ppg.

 Randle had foul trouble in the final stretch of the game and had to sit with 4 fouls up 53-48 with 7:43 remaining.  When he returned two minutes later, Stanford was only up 2 points.
