KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- - Brandon Angel scored a career-high 22 points, including 18 in the second half when the Cardinal pulled away to defeat Florida State 70-60 on Friday in a consolation semifinal at the ESPN Events Invitational.
Stanford was a dismal 3 of 26 on 3-point attempts and was outshot by the Seminoles. But the game turned on the offensive glass where the Cardinal had a 16-3 advantage, outscoring Florida State 27-2 via second-chance points.
Three times Angel hit baskets to give Stanford (3-3) a lead in the second half, including the final go-ahead points in a 17-2 run that he kicked off with a 3-pointer then a steal and score. The run left the Cardinal with the game's first double-digit lead, 57-46, with 6 1/2 minutes remaining.
Florida State (2-5) jumped out to an 8-0 lead with 3-pointers from Fletcher and Green and led most of the first half, taking a 27-21 edge into halftime after Mills had consecutive buckets in the final minute.
