Chasson Randle matched a season and career high with 33 points and the Stanford Cardinal dropped the Washington Huskies 79-67 Saturday night at Maples Pavilion for their third consecutive victory.

The Cardinal (12-5, 3-2 Pac-12 Conference) enjoyed a 34-9 advantage in free-throw attempts, making 24 of them to just six for the Huskies (11-8, 3-3) and Randle was a primary recipient, as he slashed and dashed through the Washington defense while getting 13 trips to the stripe.

Randle’s jumper with 12:34 to go in the game pushed Stanford’s lead into double-digits for the first time at 54-43 and the Huskies never got closer than seven points the rest of the way.

Randle was also 11-for-15 from the floor en route to his 33 points, equaling his total in a loss to BYU on Nov. 11. Dwight Powell added 17 points and 10 rebounds and Josh Huestis also had a double-double with 13 points and 10 boards.

Nigel Williams-Goss finished with 17 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Huskies, while Shawn Kemp Jr. scored 13 points.

Washington was 28-for-65 (43.1 percent) overall, 5-for-20 (25 percent) from 3-point range and 6-for-9 (66.7 percent) at the foul line. Stanford was 26-for-48 (54.2 percent), 3-for-7 (42.9 percent) and 24-for-34 (70.6 percent).

The teams were even on the boards at 34-34 while the Cardinal committed seven turnovers to just six for the Huskies.

Stanford goes on the road Thursday night, visiting No. 25 UCLA for an 8 p.m. Pacific tipoff.
