STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Maxime Raynaud scored 25 points on 10-of-11 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds, Stanford hit a program-record 19 3-pointers Saturday night and the Cardinal beat Southern California 99-68.

Freshman Andrej Stojakovic scored a career-high 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting and made a season-high four 3s. Spencer Jones made 5 of 7 from behind the arc to finish with 15 points for Stanford (12-11, 7-6 Pac-12). Benny Gealer made four 3s and scored 14 points, both career highs, and Kanaan Carlyle added 10 points.

Isaiah Collier made 1-of-2 free throws to end USC's scoring drought of 7-plus minutes, but Stojakovic hit another from behind the arc to make it 43-18 with 5:28 left until halftime.
