Stanford men feeling blue about hoops trip to the midwest

 

Stanford may have forgotten which 'Blue' team it was playing, or maybe even where it was playing.

One thing is for sure: the Cardinal mishandled the ball to the tune of 21 turnovers and never gave itself a chance in losing to the host DePaul Blue Demons, 87-72, in a nonconference men's basketball game Sunday.

Stanford (4-2) takes its annual hiatus for finals and will play again on Saturday, Dec. 13 against visiting Denver at 3 p.m. on the Bay Area Pac-12 Network.

Over its last three games and eight days, the Cardinal have lost to the Blue Devils in Brooklyn, beat the Blue Hens at Stanford and then lost to the Blue Demons in Rosemont, IL.

Senior point guard Chasson Randle was finally getting a chance to play in his home state, and had a good percentage of family and friends from the Quad Cities area in the crowd of 5,990. It's the same trip he often made with his father growing up.

Randle scored 16 points as all five starters reached double figures. Randle also added seven rebounds and matched his career high with six assists.

Anthony Brown collected a double-double with 15 points and a game-high 11 rebounds. Stefan Nastic scored 16, Reid Travis added 12 and Rosco Allen had 10.

The Blue Demons scored 25 points off Stanford turnovers and were able to get to the free throw line more often, sinking 18 of 24 fouls shots. Stanford was 8 of 11 from the free throw line.

DePaul led by as many as 18 points early in the second half. The Cardinal cut the lead to five at one point, but that was as close as Stanford could come.

The Cardinal has played in three separate time zones and will make it four before the year is out with a trip to BYU slated in late December.
