SEATTLE (AP) -- Oscar da Silva scored 18 points, Jaiden Delaire added 15 points, and Stanford defeated Washington 79-61 on Thursday night for its fourth win in five games.

The Cardinal (14-8, 10-6 Pac-12) began its final extended road trip of the regular season with a win fueled by a huge second half shooting performance. The Cardinal made 12 of their first 14 shots to start the second half and led by as many as 26 in the final 20 minutes.

Stanford's Daejon Davis added 12 points off the bench in what could be his final visit to his hometown during his college career. The real dominance for the Cardinal came on the interior where they outscored Washington 50-28 on points in the paint.

Stanford entered the week squarely on the fringes of the NCAA tournament and avoided what would have been a costly stumbled against the lowly Huskies. The Cardinal still have games against Oregon and at No. 17 USC that could help their tournament resume.

Washington (4-17, 3-13) lost for the sixth time in seven games and let reserves play most of the final 11 minutes after falling behind 62-36. Reserve guard Cole Bajema scored a career-high 13 points. Erik Stevenson had all 11 of his points in the first half for Washington, but appeared to injure his left leg on a breakaway in the closing seconds of the half and played sparingly in the second half.

Leading scorer Quade Green didn't score until the opening moments of the second half and finished with just five points.


Washington will host California on Saturday.
