Washington State 61, Stanford 58


STANFORD, Calif. – Faisal Aden couldn’t have picked a better night to put his paltry Pac-10 showings behind him.

His club – shorthanded Washington State – also manufactured a timely output.

With starting point guard Reggie Moore suspended, Aden picked up the slack and aided Klay Thompson with 20 points to hand red-hot Stanford its first home blemish, 61-58 on Saturday night at Maples Pavilion.

Moore was suspended hours prior to tipoff when WSU coach Ken Bone confirmed details of his sophomore’s Dec. 12 marijuana-related arrest.

But Aden, who was held to single digits in scoring three of the previous five conference games, played the sidekick role to Thompson (21 points) that fans envisioned prior to the Cougs’ Pac-10 excursion.
