Huskies even the score with an 87-76 win over Stanford


Jeremy Green matched his season-high with 24 points and complemented that with a career-high 12 rebounds as Stanford made a late run before falling short, 87-76, to host Washington in a Pac-10 Conference contest Saturday.

Green, who made 12 3-pointers in succession over his past four games before missing a tough shot against the Huskies, helped the Cardinal overcome a 20-point deficit to rally. Washington beat Cal by 32 points Thursday night.

Green has scored 20 points or more in each of his past four games. Stanford allowed more than 80 points for just the second time this year.

Stanford (6-7, 13-11) slipped into a fifth-place tie with California in the Pac-10 standings heading into Thursday's 7:30 p.m. game with visiting UCLA.

Anthony Brown added 15 points and Josh Owens had 12 for the Cardinal.

"I thought we turned it over a few too many times, which led to transition and easy opportunities for them," Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said. "And let's face it, they're a very good basketball team, and they played well. They made it hard for us to get into the offense, and they turned defense into offense a number of times."
