Stanford has had zero problem finding the bottom of the basket which has led to their quick start. The Cardinal continued to rack up thr points in a 92-60 decision over South Dakota State which was over after 20 minutes with the lead reaching 34 points. The Cardinal shot a blazing hot 59.6% while the Jackrabbits were held to 33.8% which equated to 12 more field goals which was decisive. The Stanford offense received a game high 21 points from Chasson Randle with Anthony Brown right on his heels with 19 points and eight rebounds. Josh Huestis added another 13 points and eight boards with Stefan Nastic rounding out the top contributors with ten points.
If Josh Ritchart is at full strength for UC Davis I'd be inclined to take a shot with the points so I'd check the lineup if you bet this and go light...
