Stanford Rallies to Top Oregon State, 62-54
March 11, 2009
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Anthony Goods scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half when Stanford rallied to beat Oregon State 62-54 in a first-round game of the Pac-10 tournament Wednesday night.
The ninth-seeded Cardinal (18-12) were making their first-ever appearance in the tournament's play-in game a year after losing to UCLA in the title game. They advanced to Thursday's quarterfinals against No. 13 Washington (24-7), the top seed.
The eighth-seeded Beavers (13-17) swept Stanford in the regular season for the first time since 1992-93 and twice got within one in the final 3:45. But they missed some big free throws and failed to hit a field goal in that stretch.
Lathen Wallace led the Beavers with 18 points.
