Stanford men's, women's basketball teams pick up comfortable wins

Chasson Randle scored 14 of his game-high 29 points in the second half leading the Stanford men’s basketball team to a 66-57 victory over Denver on Sunday.

Randle was 10-for-14 shooting. Anthony Brown added 12 points for Stanford (3-1) which recovered from a poor shooting first half to shoot 52 percent in the second half.

“Chasson gives us determination,” Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said of Randle. “He is a very determined young man. He’s really on a mission.”

Stanford was particularly effective during a five-minute stretch in the second half when the game went from a 41-39 lead to a 13-point advantage.

Chris Udofia led Denver (0-2) with 20 points. The Pioneers hurt themselves with 18 turnovers and a 15-for-25 performance from the free throw line.
