Stanford sends ASU packing

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Chasson Randle scored 21 points and Stanford jumped on third-seeded Arizona State early in a 79-58 win over the Sun Devils in the Pac-12 tournament quarterfinals Wednesday night.

Stanford (21-11) built any early 10-point lead, answered when Arizona State tried to make a run and pulled away down the stretch to give its NCAA tournament hopes a huge boost.

Dwight Powell scored 15, Josh Huestis added 12 and the Cardinal shot 54 percent to earn a spot in Friday's semifinals against second-seeded UCLA.

Arizona State (21-11) got off to a sluggish start for the third straight game and never fully recovered as its top players struggled against Stanford's defense.

Point guard Jahii Carson had a hard time breaking free from the Cardinal's defenders, scoring 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting. Second-leading scorer Jermaine Marshall went 2 of 8 for four points and center Jordan Bachynski had seven points on 1-of-5 shooting.
