STANFORD, Calif. — After a slow start, Stanford took command late in the first half and rolled to an 80-48 victory over Washington State on Wednesday before a sparse crowd at Maples Pavilion.

The Cardinal broke the game open with a 31-7 run that spanned the final seven minutes of the first half and the first four of the second.

Josh Huestis and Anthony Brown each scored 15 points for Stanford.

Que Johnson scored 21 points to lead the Cougars (8-9, 1-4 Pac-12), who lost their fourth in five games. Royce Woolridge scored 13.

“Our guys did a good job figuring it out in the first half, and we were focused in the second,” Cardinal coach Johnny Dawkins said. “We did a good job defensively and were able to capitalize on the offensive end.”

After collecting its second victory in four days, the Cardinal (11-5, 2-2) has a chance to generate midseason momentum. It should be the favorite in three of its next five games, starting Saturday against Washington.

Huestis sported a buzz cut after letting his hair grow for the past six months.

“The last few games, I was putting too much pressure on myself,” Huestis said. “(The haircut) signals a new beginning, and it looks like it worked.”
