The Stanford Cardinal came out shooting against the Arizona St. Sun Devils, particularly freshman point guard Chasson Randle. Randle hit three after three after three, nailing five triples and hitting ten free throws to boot, finishing with 27 points on only eight field goal attempts. Randle was outscoring ASU for much of the first half, leading at times 13-10 and 22-21 before the Sun Devils finally got over the hump and led 30-27 over Randle (the rest of the Cardinal put up 23 points).
Aaron Bright has provided plenty support for Randle with nine points on three more three pointers, as Stanford has hit nine three pointers. Arizona State has gotten eight points from Jordan Bachynski and two three pointers from Jonathan Gilling and Chanse Creekmur, but the Sun Devils need to find someone to stop Randle if they expect to mount any sort of comeback.
