STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Josh Huestis scored 13 of his team-high 18 points in the second half to help Stanford beat Northwestern 71-58 on Thursday night.

Chasson Randle, who scored a combined 51 points in Stanford's first two games, was held to 14 as the Cardinal (2-1) improved to 6-2 against the Wildcats (1-1).

Anthony Brown added 12 points for Stanford.

JerShon Cobb scored 17 points for the Wildcats. Drew Crawford, the active scoring leader in the Big 10, added 15 points.

Huestis hit a 3-pointer with just over a minute left and Stanford took a 29-27 edge into the intermission.

Stanford, which gave up 112 points in a loss to BYU Monday, looked to be in synch against the Wildcats, who beat Eastern Illinois 72-55 Saturday.

Northwestern made seven of its first 27 shots (26 percent) in the second half.

The Cardinal maintained its lead throughout the second half, using an 18-6 run to pull ahead 50-36 with 9:10 remaining to play in the contest.

The Wildcats made a run to cut the lead to single digits but could never get all the way back as Stanford eventually opened an 18-point lead.

Stanford made its first four shots to take the early advantage and then went 1 for 7, with four turnovers as the Wildcats built a six-point advantage on a Crawford 3-pointer midway through the first half.

Northwestern coach Chris Collins and Stanford's Johnny Dawkins both are Duke grads who served as assistant coaches under Mike Krzyzewski.

Randle and Wildcat Dave Sobolewski were teammates on an AAU team in Illinois.
