CORVALLIS — A key component of Stanford’s game plan was to come out confident and attack the basket, Oscar da Silva said.

“I tried to be aggressive right from the get-go. I tried to take it at their bigs, get into their zone from the high post, and that worked really well,” da Silva said.

The sophomore guard tied a career-high with 23 points and had nine rebounds and a career-high seven assists as Stanford handled Oregon State 83-60 on Thursday night.

Josh Sharma added 20 points and eight rebounds and Daejon Davis had 11 points with three 3-pointers for the Cardinal (5-5 Pac-12, 12-10 overall), who have won four of their last five.

“We’re growing up. Slowly but surely. Overall we’re trending the right way. The guys are playing hard, they’re playing together, and they believe in what we’re doing,” said Stanford coach Jeff Wulbrun, whose shirt was soaked from a post-game celebration.

“The guys played well and I allow them to throw a lot of water on me when they do that,” he explained.

Tres Tinkle scored 16 points and Stephen Thompson Jr. added 15 points for the Beavers (6-4, 14-8).

“Disappointing loss. Disappointing effort. We all need to take blame for it. We had a great opportunity tonight and Stanford came in and did a woodshed job on us,” Oregon State coach Wayne Tinkle said.

Stanford shot 54 percent, including 8-for-15 on 3-pointers, compared to 38 percent and 1 for 12 from long range for Oregon State.

The Cardinal also outrebounded the Beavers 41-26.
