Card Takes Down the Beach

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- Sophomore Jaiden Delaire scored a career-high 14 points and freshman Tyrell Terry also had 14 points in helping Stanford beat Long Beach State 86-58 on Tuesday night.

Oscar da Silva had 12 points and seven rebounds for the Cardinal (3-0), which is off to its best start in three years.

Max De Geest scored 13 points to lead the Beach. Jordan Griffin, the team's lone senior, added 12.

Stanford shot 53.8 percent overall, including 10-23 from long distance and 6-7 from the foul line. The Cardinal dished out 23 assists while forcing 19 turnovers.

Terry's dunk six minutes into the second half put the Cardinal ahead by 38 points.

Griffin sparked an 11-0 run for the Beach with a 3-pointer on the next possession but Stanford had the game well in hand by that point.

Stanford began pulling away after the first media timeout and eventually built a 21-point edge with 4:43 left in the first half. Terry hit a layup with 17 seconds left in the half and Stanford took a 47-22 lead into the locker room at halftime. The Cardinal took advantage of 12 Long Beach State turnovers in the first half to score 18 points.

Stanford also outscored the Beach in the paint by a 50-14 margin.

Next, the Cardinal hosts Santa Clara on Saturday night Maples Pavilion at 7 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Networks.
