The Huskies’ Magical Mystery Road Tour of the past three weeks ends tonight in Palo Alto.Everyone is warming up for the Huskies and appears ready to go. Gamethread starts n the jump:

> C.J. Wilcox scored on the break with 6.1 seconds left to put Washington up 65-60 and it hangs on for a third consecutive conference road win.

> Abdul Gaddy drove with the shot clock winding down and missed a layup attempt over Josh Huestis, who had switched onto him. Stanford grabbed the rebound and called timeout down 62-60 with 39.4 second remaining.

> Washington timeout. The Huskies have the ball and lead 60-58 with 1:54 left.

> Under-4 timeout and Washington clinging to a 58-56 lead.

> Washington leads 56-54 with 5:02. Stanford just called timeout. We’ll see if Washington has enough left to pull the game out.

> Wilcox bangs another 3 off the N’Diaye pindown screen. It’s not just the numbers for N’Diaye, those screens are huge in this offense.

> Under-8 timeout and Washington leads 52-50 with Kemp going to the line. Huskies let couple chances to extend slip and it’s tight again.

> Huskies lead 49-43 with 10:51 left in the game. Randle will be going to the line for Stanford out of the timeout.

> Wilcox hits a pull-up and Washington, surprisingly, goes with a Howland with the under-12 timeout coming at the next whistle. Washington leads 49-43 with 11:38 to go.

> At the under-16 timeout, Washington leads 43-41 with 15:48 to go.

> N’Diaye 4-for-4 from the field and 2-for-2 from the line. He’s 17-for-21 from field in Pac-12 play.

> Wilcox with a hard swat of Randle, who tried to drive him and bang him off the spot but ended up eating it.

> Halftime. Stanford leads 36-35. Randle with 13 and Wilcox with 11.

> Wilcox bangs a wide open 3 and the Huskies retake the lead, 29-28, after falling behind 28-24. We’re at the under-4 timeout.

> Brick by brick, we’ve made it to the under-8 timeout. Stanford leads 22-20. Teams a combined 1-for-9 from behind the 3-point line.

> The 6-10 Gage tries to post the 6-6 Suggs and Suggs swats him. Leads to a steal. Stanford leads 20-18.

> Under-12 timeout and we’re tied 14-14 with 11:47 left. Stanford, shooting 40.9 percent on the season, is shooting 50 percent to start tonight.

> Andrews with a nice hesitation move and blows by Powell to finish with his off hand. Washington leads 14-12.

> We’ve seen Washington post guards three times already. At the under-16 timeout and Washington leads 10-9 with 14:07 to go at Maples Pavilion, which isn’t even half full.

> Stanford guard Chasson Randle not starting because he was late to the shootaround. He will play.

> Same Huskies starters: Gaddy, Wilcox, Suggs, Simmons, N’Diaye. Bright, Brown Harris, Huestis and Powell for Stanford. Bright back in the starting lineup after scoring a season-high 21 against WSU on Wednesday night.

> Stanford has a tough time shooting the ball this season. It’s last in the conference at 40.9 percent from the field and second-to-last at 30.8 percent from behind the 3-point line. Its effective field-goal percentage, according to Kenpom.com, is 254th in the country. Washington is ninth in the conference in field-goal percentage (44.5), but that number is heavily influenced by the brickfest at UConn.
