No. 14 Arizona State beats No. 9 Stanford 49-31

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Sophie Brunner scored 12 points and No. 14 Arizona State held ninth-ranked Stanford to its lowest point total ever in a 49-31 victory Monday night.

The Sun Devils (11-3, 2-0 Pac-12) won their eighth straight game and have wins in three of the last four meetings between the two teams, all three in regular-season play.

The Cardinal suffered through an awful night shooting, hitting just 11 of 43 shots.

Stanford (11-3, 1-1) lost for just the fourth time in the month of January over the past seven seasons and for only the 14th time in 71 meetings with ASU since Jan. 5, 1979. The Cardinal's previous worst game was a 32-point effort against Missouri on Jan. 2, 1984.

Arizona State controlled the boards 41-32 and had a seven-rebound edge on the offensive glass. Arnecia Hawkins added 12 points for the Sun Devil as the Cardinal's five-game win streak came to an end.

The Cardinal had hope in the third quarter thanks to a Sun Devil scoring drought that lasted almost five minutes, but Stanford still trailed by 12 during that stretch. ASU built its lead to 39-19 on a 3 from Elisha Davis with 1:55 to play in the quarter.

The Sun Devils didn't score for the first 3:43 of the fourth quarter but Stanford still couldn't make a significant dent in the deficit. Lili Thompson led the Cardinal with 7 points.

The Sun Devils took a 26-9 lead late in the second quarter on Davis 3-pointer, which came after ASU had hustled for an offensive rebound.

Only two baskets in the final 1:02 of the half by Stanford's Kaylee Johnson got the Cardinal into double digits in what was its lowest point total of both the first and second quarters (7 and 6 points) this season.

The Sun Devils controlled the first quarter in large part because Stanford went more than 6 1/2 minutes without a point. ASU could only build its lead to 10, 14-4, on a short jumper from Brunner with 1:34 left.

The Cardinal cut it to 14-7 by quarter's end but made only 3 of 13 shots, and 5 of 21 in the first half.

The Cardinal is 66-7 in conference road games since the 2007-2008 season. . Stanford doesn't have a senior in the starting lineup for the first time since 2002-2003.
