M. Basketball: Huestis leads Stanford to victory against Alcorn State November 16, 2012 0 Comments Share tweet The Daily Sports Staff By: The Daily Sports Staff Junior forward Josh Huestis had a career-high 18 points in Stanford’s 69-51 win over Alcorn State on Thursday night at Maples Pavilion. (SIMON WARBY/The Stanford Daily) A career-high 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting by junior forward Josh Huestis paced Stanford (3-0) to a 69-51 win over Alcorn State (1-2), making for the Cardinal’s eighth straight win over the last two seasons. Only sophomore guard Chasson Randle joined Huestis in double figures, adding 10 points of his own, as Stanford shot just 29.7 percent from the field. But its 51-29 advantage on the boards kept the Cardinal from losing to the Southwestern Athletic Conference opponent. “It was a good test for us because we had to rely on our defense, which is what I’ve been preaching to our guys,” said head coach Johnny Dawkins. “It’s all about how you can win defensively and I thought tonight was an indication our kids understood that you can go out there, defend and be successful.” Stanford will next host Belmont at 6 p.m. on Sunday before it travels to the Bahamas for the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament over Thanksgiving break. —Joseph Beyda Alcorn State men's basketball Chasson Randle Johnny Dawkins Josh Huestis Men's Basketball 2012-11-16 The Daily Sports Staff November 16, 2012 0 Comments Share tweet Subscribe Click here to subscribe to our daily newsletter of top headlines.
