Stanford Falls in Tucson

TUCSON, Ariz. – Junior Reid Travis had a game-high 23 points and collected his 11th double-double of the season with 10 boards, but Stanford came up short in a 75-67 defeat to No. 19 Arizona Thursday night at the McKale center.
Stanford (10-6) will now try and secure a first-round bye in next week's Pac-12 Tournament with a win in the regular-season finale at Arizona State on Saturday.
The Cardinal and Wildcats were both shooting nearly 60 percent early with Arizona jumping out to a six-point lead five minutes in. Stanford quickly erased that advantage with an 11-4 run to take a one-point lead. Daejon Davis found a wide-open Oscar da Silva for the slam to cap the spurt.

Arizona used a late surge in the half to regain its advantage to 12 with two minutes left in the period.
A Davis three early in the second half capped a 7-1 run as Stanford trimmed it to five, but the Wildcats responded with a run of their own to push their lead back to 11.
Stanford trimmed it back to five again on two separate occasions on a pair of Dorian Pickens free throws and a Davis slam late in the contest.
The Wildcats held off the Cardinal in the end, in the 75-67 victory.
While posting his fourth double-double in the last six games, Travis (23 points, 10 rebounds) and his fellow post mates limited Arizona's Deandre Ayton. Two of his three lowest scoring totals have come against Stanford. On Thursday, Ayton finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
Dusan Ristic led the Wildcats with 21 points, while Allonzo Trier added 18.
Pickens finished with 11, including a pair of threes, while Davis posted 10 points and five assists.
Saddled with foul trouble the entire night, freshman KZ Okpala played a key role late with a scoring surge and several stop on the other end the court.
