Stanford men split Arizona road trip, losing to Wildcats 67-57

 

Josh Owens scored 18 points and Jeremy Green had 15 points and a team-high six rebounds but the Stanford men's basketball team could not solve the mystery which is McKale Center in Tucson.

The Cardinal dropped a 67-57 Pac-10 decision to host Arizona Sunday, a game that was delayed a day due to the tragic shootings in the city. Not all is well in the city, but at least for a while, the sports-crazed city was able to take its collective minds for a short vacation.

Stanford (2-1, 9-5) hosts first-place Washington (4-0, 12-3) Thursday in a conference match. The Huskies are off to heir best start in 26 years.

The Cardinal leaves town in third-place and will be tied with either UCLA or USC defending on Sunday's outcome between the two Southern California rivals. The Wildcats have a firm hold on second place.

Stanford trailed, 54-39, with 9:20 remaining to play but made a game of it, rallying to within 59-54 five minutes later when Green hit a jumper. The Cardinal never got any closer the rest of the way.

Stanford had the lead for a good portion of the first half and was up, 22-21, with just under nine minutes later after Owens scored on a jumper. The Wildcats scored the next eight points and never trailed again.

Arizona claimed a significant edge on the boards, winning that aspect of the contest by a 41-26 margin. The Cardinal was also 2-of-12 from long range while Arizona nailed 10 of 17 2-pointers.
