Reid Travis and Oscar Da Silva each scored 14 points but the Stanford men's basketball team dropped a 79-71 decision to Ohio State in the consolation round of the PK80 Invitational Motion bracket at Mona Center in Portland on Friday night.
Daejon Davis added a season-high 15 points and has averaged 11 points over his past 11 games.
Robert Cartwright hit a 3-pointer to give Stanford a 10-8 lead midway through the first half. The Cardinal eventually led by as many as six in the early going.
Stanford maintained the lead until Keita Bates-Diop nailed a 3-pointer with eight seconds left to knot the game at 32 entering halftime.
The Buckeyes C.J. Jackson hit the first shot of the second half, a 3-pointer that gave Ohio State the lead for good.
The absence of starters Marcus Sheffield and Dorian Pickens (both out with foot injuries) proved costly as Stanford, on a three-game losing streak, ran into foul trouble and was outmanned down the stretch.
Travis made a pair of foul shots with 5:57 remaining to play to bring Stanford within, 58-35. That's the closest Stanford came the rest of the way.
