Reid Travis scored 23 points, Robert Cartwright added 17 but the Stanford men's basketball team dropped a 108-87 decision to No. 7 Florida in the first round of the PK80 Invitational at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland on Thursday night.

Michael Humphrey added 10 points as the Cardinal (3-3) fell to its second consecutive top-10 team. Stanford plays either Gonzaga or Ohio State on Friday at 6 p.m.

Stanford missed a layup 10 seconds into the contest. Eight seconds later, Jalen Hudson hit the first of Florida's 15 3-pointers and the Gators never looked back.

Cartwright hit a 3-pointer as Stanford pulled within 22-17, but that was as close as it got the rest of the way as Florida made over 68 percent of its 3-pointers and shot over 58 percent overall.

The Cardinal scored the last six points of the first half and trailed 58-39 at the intermission.

Stanford shot 54 percent from the field, just over 41 percent from long range.

Daejon Davis, one of the three freshmen who started a fourth straight game, was 4-of-5 from the field and scored nine points to go with seven assists. Josh Sharma also scored nine points and grabbed a team-high six rebounds.

Stanford senior Dorian Pickens remains out with a left foot inury.
