PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Andrej Jakimovski scored a season-high 17 points, DJ Rodman added 15 and the WSU Cougars held off Stanford 60-59 on Saturday night.

WSU 60, Stanford 59: Box score

Jakimovski, who missed the first 10 games with a foot injury, was 6 of 8 from the field and matched his career best with five 3-pointers while playing a season-high 31 minutes. Rodman added four 3s for Washington State (9-10, 4-4 Pac-12), which has won four of its last five games.

Rodman’s 3 gave the Cougars a 60-55 lead with 2:05 to play. The Cardinal’s Spencer Jones hit a jumper, and Maxime Raynaud’s layup capped the scoring with 22 seconds left. Jakimovski missed a free throw on the next possession, but then Harrison Ingram missed a jumper, Raynaud a 3-point attempt and Brandon Angel a dunk for the Cardinal to end it.

Raynaud scored 16 points to lead Stanford (5-12, 0-7). Ingram and Jones each finished with 14 points.

Ingram made 6 of 10 with a pair of 3s for the Cardinal in the first half as they built a 34-31 lead at halftime. The Cougars opened the second half on a 9-5 surge, capped by a Jakimovski 3-pointer, for a 40-39 lead with 14:05 to play and led the rest of the way.

Washington State has won five straight in the series.

Washington State plays at Utah on Thursday. Stanford hosts Oregon State on Thursday.
