ST. LOUIS – Chasson Randle scored 23 points to pace No. 10-seed Stanford to an NCAA Tournament second-round upset of No. 7 New Mexico, Friday at Scottrade Center.
New Mexico’s Cameron Bairstow led all scorers with 24 points, but it was not enough to overcome a nearly 7-minute scoring drought for the Lobos. Tied at 45 with 10:07 to play, UNM did not score again until Bairstow’s jumper pulled the Lobos within 52-47 with 3:18 remaining. The Lobos got within a bucket, 54-52, in the final minute, but Randle’s free throws iced the game with 0:07 remaining.
Kevin Kugler and Jim Jackson called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
