Stanford upsets No. 9 Texas in overtime 74-71

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Anthony Brown scored a season-best 25 points and Chasson Randle added 21 to help Stanford knock off No. 9 Texas 74-71 in overtime Tuesday night.

The victory was Stanford’s first on the road against a top-10 team since 2008.

Brown gave Stanford (7-3) a one-point lead by making a driving shot with 1:08 left in the extra period. After Texas (10-2) guard Javan Felix missed a 3-point shot, Randle made a jumper with 10 seconds left for the final margin of victory.

Felix and Demarcus Holland then missed forced 3-point shots as Texas tried to tie the game.

Felix led Texas with a season-high 19 points. Guard Kendal Yancy and forward Jonathan Holmes scored 14 apiece.

Holmes created the overtime with a jump shot from the free throw line with 25 seconds remaining.

Stanford had taken the lead 31 seconds earlier on a jumper by Randle from around the foul circle.

Randle, Stanford’s All-Pac-12 guard, left the game with two fouls with 5:16 left in the first half. The Cardinal trailed by six at the time. Instead of crumbling, Stanford rallied to pull even at halftime at 31 apiece on a driving shot by Rosco Allen.

Brown carried Stanford through those potentially rough five minutes, though. An average 3-point shooter – 35.3 percent before Tuesday – made three treys without missing after Randle left the game. He also hit one before Randle sat down.

Despite Brown’s accuracy, Texas outshot Stanford 52.2 percent to 38.7 in the half. Stanford compensated with eight offensive rebounds and a 9-0 edge in second chance points for the half. Forward Travis Reid snagged five of them.

Javan Felix and Myles Turner scored seven points apiece for Texas in the half. Felix made a big 3-point shot, ahead of the 35-second clock, late in the half.

TIP-INS

Texas: Point guard Isaiah Taylor had x-rays Tuesday on his broken left wrist. The wrist is healing properly, but there is no date set for his return, a team spokesman said. Taylor and coach Rick Barnes have said they hope the return date is Jan. 3 for the Big 12 opener at Texas Tech. In the meantime, the cast is gone, and Taylor will wear a protective sleeve. Taylor suffered the injury late in the third game of the season against Iowa on Nov. 20 in New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Stanford: The Cardinal snapped a frustrating streak on Tuesday by not falling into a double-digit hole in the first half. The most Stanford trailed by was seven. Stanford suffered double figure first-half deficits in its previous four games, losing to DePaul and BYU and beating Denver and Loyola Marymount.
