STANFORD — Tyrell Terry matched his career-best Thursday night with 24 points for Stanford, but it still wasn’t enough to get a win for the Cardinal at Maples Pavilion.

Remy Martin scored 24 points, including a key layup in the final 32 seconds, helping Arizona State hold on for a 74-69 victory over Stanford.

The Cardinal (16-8, 5-6 Pac-12) lost its sixth in seven games after opening conference play with a 4-0 mark.

Alonzo Verge, Jr. added 19 points for the Sun Devils (16-8, 7-4), who won their fourth straight and sixth of seven overall. Kimani Lawrence had 11 points.

Jaiden Delaire added 11 points for Stanford, which had beat the Sun Devils seven of their previous eight trips to Maples Pavilion.

The Cardinal shaved nine points off a 13-point deficit to draw within 50-46 with 13:33 remaining to play, but Arizona State came back to open an 11-point advantage with just over five minutes left.

Terry instigated a run that brought Stanford within 68-65 going into the final minute, but two costly turnovers stalled the comeback bid.

Stanford’s leading scorer and rebounder Oscar da Silva was unavailable because of a head injury sustained against Colorado. He ranks 10th in scoring in the Pac-12 and his 60.2% shooting is among the top 25 in the nation.

Terry scored 20 or more points for the eighth time and has reached double figures in scoring in all but one of his 23 games.
