Dwight Powell had his fourth 20-point performance in five games, but Stanford gave up its highest point total of the season in an 88-79 loss at No. 25 North Carolina State on Tuesday night.
Lorenzo Brown scored 18 of his season-high 24 points after halftime, and Scott Wood scored 15 of his 17 in the first half for the Wolfpack (8-2).
It also allowed N.C. State to avenge a road loss last year in which the Wolfpack blew a 12-point lead in the second half at Maples Pavilion.
Powell finished with 23 points. Stanford (7-4) never led in this one, but got as close as seven with about 5½ minutes left. Then Richard Howell answered by muscling his way through the paint for a basket and C.J. Leslie followed with a jumper to push the margin back to double figures.
North Carolina State led by just five at the half and 50-42 with about 16 minutes left before Brown got rolling.
Cal 68, UC Santa Barbara 59: Freshman Tyrone Wallace had 10 points and 10 rebounds, and Cal held off a late run at Haas Pavilion.
Robert Thurman, a walk-on two years ago, scored a season-high 14 points for the Golden Bears (7-3), who never trailed and led by as many as 22 in snapping a three-game losing streak. Allen Crabbe added 12 points while David Kravish had 10.
Holy Cross 73, USF 63: Cody Doolin scored 18 points, but the Dons (5-4) lost their third in a row.

UCLA 89, Long Beach St. 70: Jordan Adams scored 24 points, Shabazz Muhammad added 21, and UCLA (8-3) won its fourth in a row.

Griner finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds, her third consecutive double-double and 47th of her career.
