STANFORD, Calif. - Daejon Davis and Oscar da Silva each scored 18 points and Stanford beat San Francisco 64-56 in comeback fashion on Tuesday night in Maples Pavilion.

The Cardinal (10-1) overcame an 11-point second-half deficit despite not having freshman point guard and second-leading scorer Tyrell Terry, who missed his first game of the season with an injury.

Stanford, which remained unbeaten in eight home games, has held every opponent this season under 70 points. The Cardinal entered Tuesday's game allowing 57.7 points, a total which led the Pac-12 and ranked 15th nationally.

Bryce Wills contributed 12 points and was one of three players to grab at least five boards.

The Cardinal offense struggled early with 19 turnovers total, but shot 47.9 percent from the field and played excellent defense, holding San Francisco to just 38.6 percent shooting. San Francisco (9-3) went into the contest shooting 46 percent from the field and scoring 84.6 points per game.

But the Dons couldn't handle Stanford's quickness and length on defense. Davis came up with three steals as Stanford forced a season-high 22 turnovers.

Charles Minlend led USF with 18 points and Jamaree Bouyea added 15.

Stanford will drive 40 miles up the peninsula on Saturday to play at Chase Center against San Diego, which is 0-2 against Pac-12 teams.
