STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Spencer Jones hit six 3-pointers and finished with 21 points, Maxime Raynaud had his second career double-double and Harrison Ingram scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half to help Stanford beat Chicago State 72-65 Wednesday night.
Raynaud, a 7-foot-1 sophomore, had 17 points, a career-high 13 rebounds and two blocks. Jones, who went into the game tied with Casey Jacobsen for fourth on Stanford's career made 3-pointers list, has hit 228 3s for the Cardinal - tied with Jeremy Green for third all time.
Wesley Cardet made 9 of 12 from the field, 3 of 3 from 3-point range and 10 of 10 from the free-throw line and finished with a career-high 31 points for Chicago State (5-17). Jahsean Corbett and Elijah Weaver added 13 points apiece but combined for just 10-of-33 shooting.
Corbett hit a 3-pointer to give the Cougars their biggest lead of the game at 52-40 with 13 minutes left but they made just 3 of 17 from the field thereon. Stanford scored the next 11 points to start a 16-2 run that gave the Cardinal a two-point lead when Michael O'Connell hit two free throws six minutes later. They never again trailed.
Ingram hit a contested step-back jumper that gave Stanford a 66-59 lead with a minute to play.
The Cardinal (8-12) have won three games in a row for the first time this season.
