Travis with a double-double in Stanford's 67-49 victory


Make it three straight for Jarod Haase and the Stanford men's basketball team and another dominant performance from Reid Travis, who seems to be making up for lost time.

Travis, who missed the final 22 games last year, scored 22 points and grabbed 17 rebounds and the Cardinal walloped visiting Weber State, 67-49, in a nonconference contest Thursday night.

Dorian Pickens added 12 points and Michael Humphrey had nine for the Cardinal (3-0), which hosts Colorado State at 3 p.m. Sunday as part of a women's and men's doubleheader. The women play CSUN at 11:30 a.m.

Travis is averaging 21.7 points through three games, in addition to 12.3 rebounds. He was Stanford's leading rebounder when he was lost for the season with a stress reaction.

The Cardinal scored 24 of the final 29 points of the first half to take a 36-20 edge into intermission. Stanford maintained a double-digit advantage the rest of the way.

As a public service message, Johnny Dawkins' coached Central Florida beat Ben Howland's Mississippi State, 86-61, Thursday night in a battle of two former Pac-12 coaches.
