John Gage made all four of his 3-point attempts and scored a career-high 19 points to help Stanford rout Utah 87-56 on Sunday night.

Chasson Randle added 17 points and eight rebounds while Josh Huestis chipped in 13 points and seven boards for the Cardinal (12-8, 3-4 Pac-12), who handed the Utes their most lopsided loss of the season.

Justin Seymour scored 12 points for Utah (9-11, 1-7) and was the lone Ute player to score in double figures. The Utes have not beaten a Division I opponent at home since a 62-53 victory over SMU on Dec. 18.

Stanford had no trouble keeping a rhythm on offense for 40 minutes. The Cardinal shot 50 percent from the field overall and connected on 60 percent of their 3-pointers. They also controlled the glass, outrebounding Utah 43-27.
