HARTFORD, Conn. — Chasson Randle scored 22 points and Stanford handed No. 10 UConn its first loss of the season, 53-51 on Wednesday night.

Josh Huestis added 13 points and Dwight Powell had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Stanford (8-2), which overcame a 10-point halftime deficit in earning its first signature win of the season.

DeAndre Daniels had 15 points for UConn (9-1), which was 6 of 10 from behind the arc in the first half and 0 for 12 in the second.

Chasson Randle’s jump shot with 3½ minutes left gave the Cardinal a 52-49 lead. The Huskies pulled within a point when Daniels tipped in a missed three-point attempt by Niels Giffey.

But Shabazz Napier missed three shots in the final 40 seconds with a chance to put the Huskies ahead. He gave up an opportunity on UConn’s final possession, passing the ball to Omar Calhoun, whose three-pointer from the right wing bounced off the rim.

Stanford came in 0-4 against UConn and had not beaten a Top 25 team away from Palo Alto since the 2008 NCAA tournament.

Texas 86, North Carolina 83: In Chapel Hill, N.C., Texas guard Demarcus Holland scored on a stickback of his own free throw with 4.1 seconds left to help Texas hold on and beat the 14th-ranked Tar Heels, 86-83. 

Holland finished with 15 points for the Longhorns (10-1), who survived a missed three-pointer from UNC’s Marcus Paige on the final play.

Washington State 80, San Francisco State 50: In Kennewick, Wash., the Cougars (6-4) used a 13-3 run late in the first half to blow open a close game. DaVonte Lacy hit three three-pointers to give WSU a 43-31 lead at halftime. Lacy finished with a game-high 22 points, while Udun Osakue’s 11 paced the Gators (4-3).

Oregon State 76, Towson 67: In Corvallis, Ore., center Anqus Brandt led the Beavers with 27 points, as OSU held off a pesky Towson squad. Forward Devon Collier had 13 points to go along with 13 rebounds for the Beavers.

Mike Burwell led the Tigers with 20, while Marcus Damas dded 14.

Ohio State 76, Delaware 64: In Columbus, Ohio, LaQuinton Ross scored 19 points, including eight in a decisive 15-0 run in the middle of the game, to lead the lethargic Buckeyes past the Blue Hens.

Delaware (5-6) cut it to 63-54 on Davon Usher’s layup with six minutes left, but Ohio State pulled away to win it.

“Sometimes you have games where it’s not clicking the way you want it to,” Ohio State coach Thad Matta said.
