Stanford’s 3-point barrage overpowers No. 4 Arizona 100-82


Freshman Kanaan Carlyle scored a career-high 28 points and Spencer Jones added 21 as they led Stanford’s historic 3-point barrage in a stunning 100-82 wire-to-wire victory over No. 4 Arizona on Sunday in Stanford, Calif.

The Cardinal (6-6, 1-1 Pac-12) made 16 of 25 attempts (64 percent) from behind the arc, including Carlyle’s heave from near halfcourt with 2.6 seconds left to set the school record for most 3-pointers in a game.

Caleb Love scored 23 for Arizona (10-3, 1-1), but his aggressive second-half drives to the basket couldn’t offset Stanford’s long-range shooting. The Wildcats, meanwhile, made only 7 of 26 3-point attempts.

Carlyle, who made his season debut Dec. 17 and was playing in just his fourth game, hit 6 of 8 3-point shots, grabbed eight rebounds and connected on all eight attempts from the free-throw line. Jones was 5 of 6 from 3-point range and made 8 of 9 shots overall.

Oumar Ballo had 12 points and seven rebounds for the Wildcats, but his double-double streak ended at three games.

Andrej Stojakovic scored 16 for the Cardinal. Maxime Raynaud had 12 points, while Jared Bynum had 11 assists to go with nine points.

Stanford led 44-35 at halftime and expanded its lead by making its first five 3-point shots of the second half. The Cardinal took its biggest lead at 77-57 with 9:46 to go before Arizona responded with a 7-0 run, eventually getting within 80-69 with about seven minutes left.

That was as close as the Wildcats got, as back-to-back layups from Brandon Angel helped Stanford keep Arizona at bay.

The Cardinal shot 58.1 percent (36 of 62) from the field.

Stanford took charge from the opening tip, taking a 7-0 lead and keeping the advantage with its hot outside shooting, including a four-point play from Carlyle with 5:23 to go for a 29-21 lead.

The Cardinal made 7 of 12 3-pointers before halftime and took its biggest lead of the half at 43-28 after a James Keefe dunk at the 2:32 mark, but the Wildcats ended on a 7-1 run to go into the break down 44-35.
