STANFORD, Calif. — Chasson Randle scored 22 points and matched his career high with six assists, and Stanford snapped its longest losing streak at home this season with an 84-66 win over Utah on Sunday.
Dwight Powell added 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists while Gabriel Harris had a career-high 14 points and seven rebounds off the bench for the Cardinal. Stanford (17-13, 8-9 Pac-12) led by as many as 22 points, using a big run in the second to pull away.
Jarred DuBois had 22 points for Utah, 14 in the second half. It wasn’t enough to prevent the Utes (11-17, 3-13) from losing their fourth straight.
Stanford hadn’t won at Maples Pavilion since beating Oregon State 81-73 on Feb. 3. Since then, the Cardinal had dropped three straight at home and were in danger of their longest slump at their home arena since 2010.
Randle made sure it wouldn’t happen.
He scored 10 points in the first half then put together his best stretch of the game after Utah pulled within 46-42 with 16 minutes left.
Randle made a 3-pointer and added two free throws, then later scored on a cutter through the key to cap a 9-0 run. After Stanford went on another big run, Randle sank his career-high tying fourth 3 to put Stanford up 74-58.
Harris, the lone senior on coach Johnny Dawkins’ team, reached double digits for the first time this season while playing in his final home game. Harris finished 6 of 7 from the floor and scored six of the Cardinal’s final eight points.
That completed a season sweep for Stanford, which finishes the regular season at California on Wednesday.
Utah made it close early in the second but couldn’t keep up and lost for the eighth time in 10 games.
Jason Washburn helped the Utes get off to a fast start before Powell made a 15-foot jumper, scored on an alley-oop pass from Randle then added two free throws as part of a 10-2 run that put Stanford in front for good. Powell later made a 3-pointer that extended the Cardinal’s lead to 36-19.
Randle also had two 3s during an 11-0 run for Stanford. Harris also provided a boost off the bench in the first half with eight points — one more than his previous season high — to help the Cardinal take a 44-31 halftime lead.
Utah, held to a season-low 46 points in Thursday’s 18-point loss at California, made its best run coming out of the break.
DuBois scored the Utes’ first seven points in the second half while Cedric Martin scored five straight, including a 3-pointer that cut Stanford’s lead to 49-45.
The Cardinal responded with a 20-6 run highlighted by Powell’s dunk and tip-in following his own miss.
