Stanford men hand Oregon third consecutive loss
EUGENE, Ore. — Anthony Brown scored a career-high 24 points and Stanford held on to send No. 17 Oregon to its third consecutive loss, 82-80 on Sunday.
Chasson Randle had 23 points for the Cardinal (10-5, 1-2 Pac-12), which beat its second ranked team this season, something it hadn’t accomplished since 2009.
Mike Moser scored 24 points to lead the Ducks (13-3, 1-3), who had two chances to tie the score in the final eight seconds but Johnathan Loyd missed an open jumper and Dominic Artis had a last-ditch layup roll off the rim as time expired.
Oregon opened the season 13-0 but hasn’t won since beating Utah in overtime on Jan. 2. The Ducks have since lost to No. 15 Colorado, California and the Cardinal.
“Our guys, their psyche is not good,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “It was a bad week and we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us.”
