STANFORD, Calif. -- Chasson Randle scored 17 of his 18 points in the second half and Stanford opened Pac-12 play with a 71-56 victory over Washington State on Friday.
Josh Hawkinson had 11 points, all from the foul line, and 15 rebounds, one off his career high, as the Cougars (6-7) lost their seventh consecutive conference opener.
Washington State has not won a road conference game in nearly two years and has lost five straight to the Cardinal.
After missing all seven of his shots in the first half, Randle scored Stanford's first seven points of the second half, including a long range shot that tied the school record (241) for 3-pointers.
Washington State missed its first six shots of the second half and the Cardinal opened with a 13-3 run to go up 40-27 with 14:42 to play.
Stanford was never seriously threatened the rest of the way.
The Cougars took a 14-4 lead on Ny Redding's jumper midway through the first half. Stanford missed its first seven shots and was 1 of 10 before making nine of its next 21 shots to rally for a 27-24 halftime lead.
Washington State: The Cougars are in the midst of playing five straight games against Northern California schools, having already played at Santa Clara and against San Jose State and UC Davis.
Stanford: Cardinal freshman forward Reid Travis was declared out indefinitely with a stress fracture. He started the Cardinal's first 11 games. Travis is averaging 7.5 points and a team-best 6.9 rebounds while shooting 44.6 percent overall. Grant Verhoeven made his first career start in Travis' place.
Washington State travels across the bay to play at California on Sunday.
