PALO ALTO, California (Ticker) -- Mike Skrocki scored a season-high 27 points on 8-of-11 shooting and Eric Zwayer added 18 on 6-of-8 shooting as Richmond had five players reach double figures in its 83-69 upset of 21st-ranked Stanford.
Stanford lost both games at the Stanford Invitational for the first time after suffering a shocking loss to Montana on Monday. The Cardinal (5-3) also saw their streak of winning their own tournament end after seven straight titles.
Skrocki tallied 18 points in the second half, when the Spiders (4-3) outscored the Cardinal, 53-39.
"We need to start defending people," Cardinal coach Mike Montgomery said. "Our lack of defense is hurting us. People need to step up and challenge. We're not making shots, it puts pressure on defense."
Jamaal Scott and Tony Dobbins registered 11 points apiece and Reggie Brown chipped in 10 off the bench for Richmond.
Josh Childress paced Stanford with 16 points. But without injured point guard Chris Hernandez, the Cardinal lost for the second time is as many all-time meetings with the Spiders.
Richmond also beat Stanford at Maples Pavillion to win the Apple Invitational during the 1985-86 season.
The Spiders owned a slender 45-44 advantage with just over 13 minutes left when Skrocki converted a three-point play, sparking a 23-12 burst over the next 10 minutes. Skrocki hit a jumper with 3:20 left as Richmond took a 69-56 lead.
Skrocki finished one point shy of his career high, which he set March 18 against Minnesota.
