STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Angel scored a career-high 13 points, Noah Taitz added 11 and Stanford defeated Valparaiso 74-60 on Wednesday night.

Stanford’s Spencer Jones had five points and Maxime Raynaud four in an 11-1 opening to the game. Angel added a 3-pointer three minutes later and Taitz added a pair of his own for a 14-point lead with just under eight minutes left in the half. The Cardinal lead remained in double figures. Stanford (3-1) was up 39-23 at the break.

Angel added two more from the arc in a little over a minute of the second half for a 54-33 lead with under 14 minutes remaining.

Michael O’Connell scored Stanford’s final points on a 3-pointer with four minutes left before the Beacons (0-3) finished the game on a 9-0 run. Stanford shot 11 of 23 from the arc.

Wisconsin transfer Trevor Anderson led Valparaiso with 18 points and 10 rebounds and Sheldon Edwards added 11 points.

Matt Lottich, in his sixth season as head coach of the Beacons, played at Stanford (2000-2004). This was his first time coaching against the Cardinal.
