No. 11 Stanford 95, Oregon 67
Mar. 06, 1998
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) _ David Moseley scored 19 points as No. 11 Stanford clinched second place in the Pac-10 conference by jumping out to a big lead and coasting to a 95-67 victory over Oregon on Thursday night.
The Cardinal (25-4, 14-3 Pac-10) took a 17-point halftime lead and built the margin to 27 points early in the second half. Stanford was 10-of-14 on 3-pointers and outrebounded Oregon 33-19.
Arthur Lee had 16 points for Stanford and Ryan Mendez had 13. Kris Weems, who scored a career-high 34 points in an 89-67 Stanford victory at Oregon in early January, was held to nine points.
Moseley and Mendez each had three 3-pointers as Stanford won its 12th straight against Oregon at home.
Terik Brown had 19 points and A.D. Smith had 15 for Oregon (13-13, 8-9), which entered the game having won six of its previous eight contests. Jamar Curry added 14 for the Ducks.
Oregon, which wraps up its regular season Saturday at California, will need a win there to finish with a winning record for the fourth straight year _ which would be the longest such stretch by the Ducks since the 1970s.
The Cardinal need to make four 3-pointers in Saturday's regular-season finale against Oregon State to break the school record of 222 set last year. It took Stanford a school-record 570 attempts to hit those 3-pointers last year, while this year's squad is 219-of-527 from behind the arc.
Lee had 11 points and Moseley came off the bench to add nine as the Cardinal took a 48-31 halftime lead. Smith hit all three of his 3-point shots and had 13 points in the first half for the Ducks.
Brown scored on a layup opening the second half, but Stanford then reeled off 12 straight points _ including consecutive 3-pointers by Peter Sauer and Lee _ to expand its lead to 27 points.
The lead grew to 29 points with less than two minutes to play after a 3-pointer by Moseley, and to 30 in the final minute on a basket by little-used sub Alex Gelbard.
