Stanford, Calif. • Chasson Randle made a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 26 points to help Stanford boost their case for an at-large NCAA Tournament berth with an 83-74 victory over No. 23 UCLA on Saturday.

Josh Huestis tied a career high with 22 points and Anthony Brown had 18 for the Cardinal (18-8, 9-5 Pac-12), who have won five of six.

This might have been the most impressive of the bunch, coming against a ranked team playing its best basketball of the season. Stanford made 62 percent of its shots, topping 60 percent in a conference game for the first time since exactly 11 years ago against UCLA.

Zach LaVine and Norman Powell scored 14 points each and Tony Parker added 13 for the Bruins (21-6, 10-4), which now trails No. 4 Arizona by two games for the conference lead. Having lost the only scheduled meeting against the Wildcats, UCLA has little margin for error in its quest for the regular-season title.

The Cardinal are just looking to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time in six seasons under coach Johnny Dawkins.

No. 4 Arizona 88, Colorado 61 • At Boulder, Colo., freshman Aaron Gordon scored 21 of his season-best 23 points in the second half and Nick Johnson added 20 points as fourth-ranked Arizona won at Colorado for the first time since 1973.

Coming off an emotionally draining win over Arizona State on Wednesday that burnished their NCAA tourney credentials, the Buffaloes (20-8, 9-6) came out ice cold, missing their first 14 shots.

Washington 86, Oregon State 62 • At Corvallis, Ore., C.J. Wilcox had 23 points and Washington snapped a seven-game losing streak on the road with a victory over Oregon State. Wilcox moved in front of Jon Brockman for second on the Huskies' all-time career points list. —
