Undefeated in two Pac-12 Conference games since returning from a COVID-19 pause, the Stanford Cardinal will seek their fifth consecutive win Saturday evening, playing the Washington Huskies in Seattle.

The resurgent Cardinal (10-4, 3-1) restarted Tuesday after an almost three-week hiatus, and immediately defeated fifth-ranked and previously unbeaten USC 75-69.

Stanford had not played since Dec. 23, when it won its second game at the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu.

The Cardinal followed Tuesday night with a 62-57 win at Washington State on Thursday. Spencer Jones and Brandon Angel each scored 16 points as Stanford rallied from an 11-point, second-half deficit.

"We understood how important it was to guard the 3-point line, to rebound the basketball, and then in the second half we did a great job of that," Stanford coach Jerod Haase said.

Stanford held Washington State to 2-of-12 3-point shooting in the second half. The Cardinal flipped the game by scoring 23 unanswered points in a 12-minute surge that turned a 42-31 deficit into a 54-42 lead.

Stanford made 56.5 percent of its second-half shots while holding the Cougars to 28.6 percent (8-for-28).

Jones sank 4 of 5 shots from the field to score 10 second-half points; he averages 10.7 a game for the season, with Harrison Ingram (12.2) and Jaiden Delaire (11.9) also scoring in double figures. Angel came off the bench to make 4 of 6 shots for nine points.

Washington (7-7, 2-2) pulled to .500 for the season and in conference play with a 64-55 win over Cal on Wednesday thanks in part to its offensive rebounding. The Huskies pulled down 12 offensive boards -- five by Nate Roberts, who finished with a 10-point, 12-rebound double-double.

"Nate took the challenge personally," Terrell Brown Jr. told The Seattle Times. "He got stops, rebounds and he made free throws. He took his time. He's working on those all the time after practice and before practice."

It was the first double-double for Roberts since a seasoning-opening 10-point, 19-rebound performance against Northern Illinois. Otherwise, he has averaged less than five rebounds and three points a game, so the Huskies hope for continued strong performances from the fourth-year 6-foot-11 forward.

Meanwhile, Brown -- the Pac-12's leading scorer at 20.7 points per game -- scored 21 against Cal. Brown has scored in double figures every game this season.

Stanford Cardinal vs. Washington Huskies Recap FEB 18TH 2021

Oscar da Silva scored 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds while visiting Stanford held slumping Washington to 26.7 percent shooting in the second half Thursday night to take a 72-64 Pac-12 Conference win at Alaska Airlines Arena in Seattle.

Tyrell Terry added 14 points and Spencer Jones tallied 12 for the Cardinal (17-9, 6-7 Pac-12), which canned 47.3 percent of their shots and converted 12 Huskies turnovers into 20 points.

Freshman center Isaiah Stewart's 14 points led four players in double figures for the Huskies (12-15, 2-12), who have played themselves into the conference cellar with nine straight losses. They've led at halftime in five of those nine games.

Marcus Tsohonis scored 11, while Nahziah Carter and reserve guard RaeQuan Battle each added 10 points. But Washington again struggled to produce points, converting only 35.5 percent of its shots and going 4 of 24 on 3-pointers.

In a game that featured 12 ties and 19 lead changes, Stanford took the lead for good when Jaiden Delaire converted a stickback with 11:25 left for a 51-49 edge. That started an 11-2 run that Terry capped by drilling a 3-pointer off a Huskies turnover to make it 60-51 with 5:53 remaining.

Neither team led by more than four points in a back-and-forth first half. Stewart established himself inside immediately with a jumper and a dunk in the first 3:18 that gave Washington a 9-5 edge, but Terry's 3-pointer made it 10-9 Stanford at the 14:50 mark.

The Cardinal led for most of the next six minutes before the Huskies regained the advantage with 8:15 left when Sam Timmins dunked off a turnover. A six-point run by Stanford, capped by Terry's transition jam, put it ahead 27-25 with 5:10 remaining.

Washington wound up with the last word in the half, though, as Carter stole the ball and slammed in transition to give it a 37-35 lead. Stewart led it with 10 points, going 6 of 6 at the foul line.
