Nov. 8, 2008
STANFORD, Calif.- Junior Landry Fields and sophomore Josh Owens each poured in 17 points to lead five Stanford players in double-figures in a 97-56 victory over Seattle Pacific on Saturday night in an exhibition game at Maples Pavilion.
Stanford shot 53.8 percent overall, limited Seattle Pacific to a 37.9 percent clip and held a 45-26 rebounding edge. The Cardinal finished 8-20 from beyond the arc, thanks to three triples apiece from Brown and Green.
The Cardinal cruised to a 55-30 halftime lead and closed out an easy victory, winning in similar fashion to Tuesday's 93-54 exhibition rout of Cal State Stanislaus.
Statistics from the game do not count toward regular season totals.
A lay-up from Green with 1:23 remaining in the contest gave Stanford its largest lead of the night at 97-55.
A jumper from Owens at the 11:20 mark of the first half provided the Cardinal with its first double-digit lead at 25-15.
Stanford stretched its lead to 21 with 2:27 remaining in the first period and took a 55-30 lead into the break. Owens was 6-8 from the field in the first half and Hill had already totaled 10 points and nine boards.
A three-pointer from Fields at the 15:25 mark of the second half put Stanford ahead 68-38.
Stanford opens the 2008-09 campaign at Yale on Friday, Nov. 14, representing the first time the Cardinal has opened the season on the road since an 81-66 victory at New Mexico back on Nov. 17, 2001.
