STANFORD, Calif.- Dwight Powell poured in a game-high 16 points to lead four players in double figures as Stanford cruised to a 100-47 victory over Ryerson University in an exhibition game at Maples Pavilion on Saturday night.
Stanford shot 58.0 percent overall, making 40-69 from the field in a balanced offensive attack that saw 14 different players break into the scoring column. Meanwhile, the Cardinal limited Ryerson to 32.6 percent shooting from the field and forced the Rams into 22 turnovers.

The Cardinal coasted to a 52-25 halftime lead, taking its first double-digit lead at 18-7 with 12:10 remaining following an inside bucket from John Gage.
Stanford led by as many as 29 points in the opening period, hitting that mark for the first time following a dunk from Josh Huestis to make it 46-17 at the 3:47 mark.
The lead swelled to 50 with 6:16 left to play, as Jack Trotter converted on a dunk following a nice feed from Owens.
A turnaround jumper from Huestis with four seconds left allowed Stanford to reach the century mark.
