The Cardinal went on an 11-3 first half run to open up a comfortable lead. The Wildcats missed their first five shots of the second half and Stanford held a double figure lead for most of the half.

Salim Stoudamire's two free throws trimmed the lead to 77-71, but Hernandez streaked down the court for an easy lay-in.

Grunfeld was a staggering 10-12 from the field, including a perfect 3-3 from behind the arc.

Four Wildcats finished in double figures, including 20 from Channing Frye.

Hassan Adams added 19.
