Anthony Goods finally burst out of his slump (no more than seven points in the last seven games) to surge to a 20-point game in Stanford's 79-69 defeat of Cal. The Golden Bears had a struggling star of their own to contend with, as Ryan Anderson couldn't find the basket in the first half, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Anderson finished with 13 points on 2-for-13 field goal shooting, as Stanford's Robin Lopez stuck on him while racking up 11 points of his own. Lopez' twin, Brook, added 15 points and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds, and Mitch Johnson threw in 11 more. Stanford still sits one game behind UCLA in the Pac-10, with four to play.
