STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- Josh Huestis blocked a potential go-ahead jumper by Lazeric Jones with 3 seconds remaining, lifting Stanford to a 60-59 victory over Pac-12 preseason favorite UCLA on Thursday night in the conference opener for both teams.

Jones scored a career-high 26 points, but his floating runner in the lane was swatted back by Huestis in the final seconds. Anthony Brown grabbed the rolling ball for Stanford (11-2, 1-0) and sprinted up court to seal a sizzling win that had Maples Pavilion rocking at the buzzer.

Aaron Bright had 16 points and Chasson Randle scored 10 for the Cardinal, who blew an 11-point first-half lead before snapping UCLA's five-game winning streak. The Bruins (7-6, 0-1) also had won three in a row and nine of the last 10 against Stanford.
