PALO ALTO, California (Ticker) -- Top-ranked Stanford kept its perfect season intact, posting a 73-47 victory over Pac-10 Conference foe Oregon State for its 10th straight win in the series.
All-American candidate Josh Childress scored all 12 of his points during a one-sided first half, helping the Cardinal (24-0, 15-0 Pac-10) lead by at least 10 points over the final 32:36.
Eleven different players scored for Stanford, which already has clinched the Pac-10 regular-season title and is looking to become the first team in league history to go unbeaten since it expanded to 10 teams.
Second-ranked Saint Joseph's (25-0) of the Atlantic 10 Conference also is unbeaten.
The Cardinal's winning streak is the longest in the conference since 1980-81. They next host Oregon on Saturday.
"We have a lot of games left and I'm pleased with how the team has handled the media attention," Stanford coach Mike Montgomery said. "This is a pretty level-headed group of kinds who work very hard."
Childress scored six points during a 14-2 burst that opened a 21-9 lead 7:24 into the game. He dunked en route to a three-point play midway through the run and capped it with a 3-pointer.
Known for his afro hairstyle, Childress added his other six points in an 11-4 spurt that made it 38-20 with 1:22 left in the half. Stanford took a 38-22 cushion into the locker room.
Chris Hernandez scored 11 of his 13 points in the opening 20 minutes, then started a 7-0 run with a layup as the Cardinal built a 45-26 lead 3:18 into the second half. The lead was 20 points, 51-31, for the first time on Jason Haas' basket with 12:23 to go.
The big lead enabled Montgomery to rest his regulars. Childress played 25 minutes - the most of any player - and was one of 10 Cardinal to see the court for at least 13 minutes.
"It was nice to have the opportunity for everyone to play," Montgomery said. "This was a pretty good win for us and healthy for us to play everyone and give them an opportunity for quality minutes."
Fred Washington scored 11 points in 13 minutes off the bench for Stanford, which shot 53 percent from the field (28-of-53) while holding Oregon State to 32 percent (18-of-56).
David Lucas scored 14 points for the Beavers (11-14, 5-10), who had won two straight after Saturday's upset of Arizona.
