Anthony Brown scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Stanford men's basketball team survived a near collapse to beat host USC, 78-76, in a Pac-12 Conference contest on Sunday night.
The Cardinal (3-1, 11-4) led by 13 points with just under seven minutes to play, but then missed nine of its next 10 shots to allow the Trojans to climb within one point with a chance to win in the last eight seconds.
Stanford, which let a 14-point lead slip away in a double-overtime loss at UCLA on Thursday night, scored one point over the final 5:27, a free throw by Stefan Nastic with two seconds remaining to play following a USC turnover.
Nastic scored 15 points and had six rebounds, while Rosco Allen scored a career-high 18 points and Chasson Randle added 12.
Stanford was 9 of 13 from long range in the first half and then went 1 of 12 in the second half.
The Cardinal built its double-digit lead by driving to the basket. Stanford let USC back in the game from trying to shoot the long ball.
Stanford plays at California at 8 p.m. Wednesday before playing five of its next seven games at home.
