COURT HEARING . . . For all the what-ifs and could-have-beens of the season, the Stanford men's basketball team is in remarkably good shape as long as they can finish the regular season with another win or two and use the conference tournament as a jumping board into the postseason. Tyrell Terry scored 18 of his season-high 27 points in the second half, Oscar da Silva had 20 and Stanford ended a four-game losing streak to Utah, beating the Utes 70-62 on Wednesday, extending its winning streak to three. "The team knows where we are," Stanford coach Jerod Haase said of Stanford's situation regarding the postseason and being on the bubble for the NCAA tournament. "We have opportunities but the reality is we have to win some games." The Cardinal (19-9, 8-7) gets its next chance when second-place Colorado comes to town for a 3 p.m. Sunday matinee. A win would guarantee at least a .500 conference record and give Stanford's its 20th victory. "It's good for us to get a little break," Terry said of the extra two days before the next game. "We have an extra practice to get prepared for Colorado." Jaiden Delaire, who scored 11 points off the bench, including a key 3-pointer with a minute to play, is well on his way to becoming a regular contributor for the Cardinal. "My goal is to work hard every day and try to get better," Delaire said. "I've put a lot of work into my shot." Despite losing all but a few of its 18-point, first-half advantage, the Cardinal maintained its poise and hung onto the win.
