LAS VEGAS (AP) - Chasson Randle scored 22 points, Josh Powell added 16 and sixth-seeded Stanford used a big second-half run to pull away for a 74-63 win over Washington State in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament Wednesday night.
Stanford (20-11) shot 58 percent against the 11th-seeded Cougars and used a 16-4 run in the second half to take control of what had been a tight game.
Anthony Brown and Josh Huestis scored 12 points each for the Cardinal, who face third-seeded Arizona State (21-10) in Thursday's quarterfinals
Washington State (10-21) shot well to start both halves, but couldn't sustain it.
DaVonte' Lacy scored 25 points and D.J. Shelton had 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Cougars, who went 5-for-18 from 3-point range.
Stanford, like several teams in the conference, was looking for a good run in the Pac-12 tournament to catch the attention of the NCAA tournament selection committee.
