(Newser) – Stanford blew a large lead late for the second straight game,  but this time was able to rebound against Arizona thanks to twin brothers Robin and Brook Lopez, reports the AP. The Cardinal's two 7-footers combined for 37 points against a smaller Wildcats lineup, including two free throws by Brook for the winning margin of 67-66. Elsewhere in hoops:

  • Texas won its 22nd straight against Baylor, this time 82-77. Damion Jones led the No. 11 Longhorns with 19 points and 10 rebounds. A 15-6 run got Baylor within one with 28 seconds left but UT closed the door at the foul line.
  • Louisville took the lead for good on a 9-0 second-half run and defeated Providence 80-72.
