UCLA snaps Stanford’s three-game win streak

Tony Parker scored a career-high 22 points and UCLA used a big first-half run to cruise past Stanford 91-74 on Thursday night, ending the Cardinal’s three-game winning streak.

The Bruins (15-4, 4-2 Pac-12) have won nine of their last 11 against Stanford, including a sweep last season. Jordan Adams added 19 points, Kyle Anderson had 13 points, seven rebounds and 10 assists, and Norman Powell had 13 points.

Stanford (12-6, 3-3) was led by Dwight Powell with 17 points and 13 rebounds, and Josh Huestis had 12 points and 12 rebounds. Chasson Randle came in averaging 19.5 points, but was held to 14 points on 3 of 16 shooting. The Cardinal has lost nine straight at Pauley Pavilion dating to January 2005.

ST. MARY’S 80, PEPPERDINE 74

Brad Waldow scored 21 points and Stephen Holt had 20 as St. Mary’s held off Pepperdine. Waldow had 13 rebounds — including seven offensive boards — as St. Mary’s (15-5, 5-2 West Coast Conference) out-rebounded Pepperdine (12-9, 5-4) 41-34. Kerry Carter added 18 for the Gaels, while Beau Levesque had 13. Brendan Lane led Pepperdine with 18 points.

WOMEN

BYU 81, USF 47

USF had a horrific shooting night, hitting just 13-of-61 shots (21.3 percent) as BYU (15-4, 5-3) rushed out to an early lead and never looked back. The Dons (7-12, 2-6 WCC) scored just 15 points in the first half. Zhane Dikes was the lone USF player to finish in double figures with 13 points.

SAN DIEGO 79, SANTA CLARA 55

Despite a hot start, Santa Clara ran out of steam in a lopsided loss to San Diego. Jo Paine led Santa Clara (7-12, 3-5) with 13 points, while San Diego (16-3, 6-2) was paced by Sophia Ederaine’s 21 points.
