STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Daejon Davis scored 15 points, one of four Stanford players to score in double figures, and the Cardinal won their second straight to open the season, beating Cal State Fullerton 70-54 on Saturday night.
Oscar da Silva added 14 points for Stanford (1-1), which played the Titans (0-2) for the first time in seven years. Freshmen Tyrell Terry and Spencer Jones each scored 12 points.
Wayne Arnold scored 14 points and Davon Clare had 15 rebounds to lead Cal State Fullerton. Brandon Kamga added 10 points.
The Titans were 4 of 23 from 3-point range, including 2 of 13 in the second half. Stanford was 5 of 17.
Jones entered the game midway through the first half and immediately hit a 3-pointer to give Stanford a double-digit lead at 17-5. The Cardinal led by as many as 19 before halftime and the Titans never got closer than seven points the rest of the way.
Cal State Fullerton: CSUF has reached the postseason in each of the past three years and are looking to add to that streak this season. Senior forward Davon Clare, who has played in nearly 100 games at Fullerton, will be counted upon for leadership and will have an extended role on the court as well.
Stanford: Daejon Davis, who had an off-night in the Cardinal’s season opener, responded with a solid shooting effort against the Titans. The junior guard will not have to play the point as much as he has in the past and will be able to create things for himself and his teammates.
Cal State Fullerton: The Titans travel to play Wyoming on Wednesday night in the third of three road games to open the season.
Stanford: The Cardinal host their second straight Big West opponent when Long Beach State comes to town for a Tuesday night contest. Stanford opens with six home games for the first time in 13 years.
