Scouting report: Stanford won the first meeting between these teams thanks to a big game from its leading scorer (Chasson Randle) and a superb defensive effort against Washington’s leading scorer (C.J. Wilcox). Randle sliced UW’s defense for 33 points on Jan. 18, leading the Cardinal to a 79-67 victory at Maples Pavilion. Wilcox, on the other hand, scored only nine points on 4-for-13 shooting, and made just one of his six attempts from 3-point range. Wilcox was 0-for-7 on 3-pointers during Sunday’s loss at Colorado. He needs to get going for UW to have a chance on Wednesday. … One way for the Huskies to make the offensive end more difficult for the Cardinal is to get some of its starters in foul trouble. Stanford’s starting five – which has stayed the same all season – accounts for 86.3 percent of the team’s scoring. The Cardinal don’t have a healthy player on the bench who averages more than 12 minutes per game.
