Brown's double-double helps Stanford win home finale

 

Anthony Brown matched his career-high with 21 points and had 11 rebounds as the Stanford men's basketball team beat visiting Seattle, 77-66, in a nonconference contest Tuesday night in Maples Pavilion.

Jeremy Green added 22 points as the Cardinal (15-14) won its second straight and will complete the regular season with a Pac-10 game at California at 4 pm. on Saturday. Green made his first seven shots, including four from long range.

Josh Owens scored 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting before fouling out as Stanford shot 58 percent from the field overall.

The Cardinal turned a 28-27 halftime lead into a 49-33 advantage less than six minutes into the second half.

Seattle drew within 67-61 with 3:08 remaining but Stanford made enough free throws down the stretch to hang on.

The Cardinal can finish as high as sixth and no lower than eighth. To qualify for a postseason tournament, though, Stanford needs to win a couple of more games and get deep into the conference tournament.

Finishing sixth is important in that it avoids the possibility of a play-in game on Wednesday, March 10 and a spot in the quarterfinals against the third seed, which is currently Washington.
