Here's a look at Stanford, which hosts Oregon State on Thursday night in a Pac-12 game.

The Cardinal (13-13, 5-9 Pac-12) is coming off one of its best wins of the season, a 73-68 home victory against rival California last Friday. Junior guard Dorian Pickens had a game-high 23 points and six rebounds and junior forward Reid Travis 19 points and nine rebounds.

Stanford has forced 90 turnovers in the past five games, including 20 by the Golden Bears. The Cardinal has played the fourth-toughest schedule in the country, according to ESPN.

Travis is the team's leading scorer at 17.3 points per game, along with 8.6 rebounds. He's scored 17 or more in the past four games, including a pair of 26-point efforts. He has eight 20-point games this season 

Travis is one of only two players in the conference in the top eight in scoring rebounds and field goal percentage (55.6 percent).

Stanford also gets contributions from Pickens (12.5 points, 3.8 rebounds) and junior forward Michael Humphrey (9.4 points, 6.4 rebounds).

Due to a shoulder injury, Travis didn't play in the first game between the two teams, which Stanford won 62-46 on Jan. 19 at Gill Coliseum.

Humphrey had 21 points and six rebounds and Marcus Allen 12 points for the Cardinal. Stevie Thompson had 15 points and Kendal Manuel 10 for Oregon State.

The Beavers shot 35 percent (14-40), their third-lowest mark of the season. The Cardinal shot 45 percent (18-40) and outscored OSU 35-21 in the second half after leading by two at halftime.
