Men's Hoops Falls to No. 3 Stanford
January 23, 1999
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Arthur Lee scored 12 of his 15 points in the final 5:31 as No. 3 Stanford, which played most of the second half without foul-plagued center Tim Young, defeated Washington 67-60 Saturday for its 13th straight win.
The game was tied at 50 when Lee, who has made a habit of late-game heroics the last two seasons, took over. In addition to his two 3-pointers in the closing minutes, he had a pair of steals to undermine Washington rallies.
Mark Madsen had 20 points and nine rebounds for Stanford (17-2, 7-0 Pac-10). Young had 10 points before fouling out with 2:38 left. He played just eight minutes in the second half.
Senque Carey had 16 points and Todd MacCulloch had 14 points and 12 rebounds for Washington (10-7, 3-4), which had a three-game winning streak snapped. The Huskies have lost six straight at Stanford.
Trailing by five at halftime, the Cardinal scored eight straight points early in the second half to go ahead 32-31. The lead changed hands three times in the next few minutes, before Stanford took a 41-38 lead with 14:30 left on a long 3-pointer by Peter Sauer - who pumped his left arm in the air to celebrate.
But Young picked up his fourth foul 14 seconds later, and MacCulloch took advantage. He scored six points in the next 4 1/2 minutes, and Washington regained the lead at 46-45 on Carey's layup with 9:37 left.
The Huskies built a 50-46 lead with 7:32 remaining, but Stanford scored the next nine points - a finger roll by David Moseley, a layup by Kris Weems, a 3-pointer by Lee and two free throws by Weems following a steal by Lee - to take a 55-50 lead with 4:56 left.
Washington pulled back within a point with 2:38 remaining, when Carey hit two free throws as Young fouled out.
But Madsen, who has struggled from the free throw line all season, hit two free throws and Lee hit a 3-pointer with 54 seconds. Lee stole the ball on Washington's next possession and hit two free throws to give Stanford a 64-56 lead.
The first half featured several streaks.
Stanford scored the first eight points of the game, holding Washington scoreless for the opening 3:22. The Cardinal were still leading 16-9 when they went cold from the field, going without a point for 4:37 as the Huskies scored 10 straight points for a 19-16 lead.
Washington built its lead to 27-18 with 3:56 left, and led 29-24 at halftime. MacCulloch had eight points and eight rebounds in the half, while Madsen scored 12 points in the first half for Stanford.
Stanford went 0-for-4 on 3-pointers in the first half and did not shoot a foul shot. The Huskies were 0-for-5 on 3-pointers in the half.
