LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jeremy Green scored 18 points and Landry Fields added 17 as Stanford surprised second-seeded Arizona State 70-61 in the Pac-10 Conference tournament quarterfinals Thursday night.

The No. 7 Cardinal (14-17) advanced to Friday's semifinals against third-seeded Washington, which beat No. 6 Oregon State

Arizona State (22-10) swept the Cardinal during the regular season for the first time since 2004-05. But on Thursday, the Sun
Devils led just once -- by one point early in the second half.

Rihards Kuksiks scored 15 points, all in the first half, before he fouled out in the closing seconds.

Stanford immediately grabbed the lead back for good, running up a 15-point advantage on a 3-pointer by Fields with 11:43 remaining.

It capped eight consecutive points by the first-team All-Pac-10 senior.
