STANFORD, Calif. — Stanford guard Chasson Randle scored 24 points, including a layup with 2.2 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime, and the Cardinal beat No. 21 Washington 68-60 Sunday night at Maples Pavilion.

Stanford (10-3, 2-0 in the Pac-12) never trailed in the overtime, as guard Anthony Brown, who finished with 16 points, hit an outside shot with 4:10 left in the extra period to put the Cardinal ahead 58-56. A 3-pointer by forward Rosco Allen increased the Cardinal lead to five points with 2:40 remaining.

The Huskies (11-3, 0-2) did not make a field goal in the overtime, and they suffered their third straight loss.

Center Stefan Nastic had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Cardinal.

Forward Shawn Kemp Jr. had 19 points for Washington. The Huskies’ leading scorer, guard Nigel Williams-Goss, was limited to eight points. Center Robert Upshaw had 10 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks for the Huskies, and guard Andrew Andrews had 13 points.

Stanford was aided by Washington’s scoring slump in the middle portion of the game. Over a span of 13:39 that bridged the late stages of the first half and the early part of the second, the Huskies missed all 15 of their field-goal attempts.

The Huskies scored just three points in that stretch, helping the Cardinal turn a 10-point deficit with 9:53 left in the first half into a seven-point lead with 16:33 remaining in the second half.

Washington bounced back to take a 39-37 lead at the 12:09 mark as Kemp scored seven straight points, the last two coming on free throws that gave the Huskies the two-point lead.

The lead seesawed until Williams-Goss made a 10-footer to put Washington ahead 50-49 with 3:23 remaining. Huskies center Robert Upshaw added a layup to make it 52-49 and the Washington lead eventually grew to five points with 2:13 left.

Brown cut the deficit to two points with two free throws with 14.4 seconds to go, and Stanford had a chance to tie or win when Williams-Goss missed the front end of a one-and-one with 13.4 seconds left.

Randle sent the game into overtime with a driving layup with 2.2 seconds left.

With his 3-point shot in the second half, Randle set the school record for 3-pointers made in a career at 242.

Stanford trailed for nearly the entire first half, but went into halftime tied at 28 thanks to a 3-point shot with eight seconds left by Allen.

The Huskies were hot from the field at the start of the game, grabbing a quick 12-2 lead. They still held a 10-point lead with 9:53 remaining, having made 10 of 13 field-goal attempts to that point.

Washington then missed all 12 of its field-goal attempts the rest of the half, helping the Cardinal catch up.

Randle had 10 first-half points and his dunk off a baseline drive with 3:11 left reduced the Cardinal deficit to 27-25. Andrews hit a free throw with 30 seconds left to make it 28-25 before Allen gathered in a loose ball and hit the game-tying three-pointer just before halftime.

Williams-Goss, Washington’s leading scorer, went scoreless in the first half, missing both his shots from the field.
