Calvin Haynes was the long distance workhorse in the 72-60 Beaver triumph, scoring a career high 25 points.
He had help. Seth Tarver and Roeland Schaftenaar each just missed cracking the 20 point mark, with Tarver a season-high 19 points while Schaftenaar had 18.
The Beavs led at halftime by six points and the for the first 10 minutes, it was punch and counterpunch. OSU would go up by as many as nine, Stanford would cut it to as few as five points.
Back and forth it went, until OSU finally pushed the lead to double-digits with 7:28 to go on Schaftenaar's jumper. After that, the Stanford players' body language seemed to indicate they know this one was over.
Schaftenaar, a 6-11 center who does not get many of his points in the paint, was 8-for-11 from the field on a variety of twisting runners, jumpers and hook shots. Tarver and Schaftenaar each had three steals, as the Beavs forced 16 Cardinal turnovers.
Haynes played 36 minutes in his first start of the season, hitting 10-of-15 including a pair from 3-point land.
Tarver was the sharpest of all, hitting 8-of-10 along with six rebounds. Daniel Deane led the Beavs on the boards, pulling down eight rebounds. He also chipped in seven points.
