Basketball: Live from the Pac-10 tournament — you will absolutely not believe this

We’re at halftime here at the Staples Center where Stanford is shooting 11.8 percent — that’s right — and trails Oregon State just 26-18 at halftime.

The Cardinal has made 4 of 34 shots, including 1 for 10 from 3-point range.

Dwight Powell scored a layup on Stanford’s first possession with 19:41 left, then the Cardinal made just one more field goal over the next 11 minutes.

Stanford was 3 for 30 at one point.

And the halftime margin is eight points.

This game ought to do wonders for helping the Pac-10 sell a new TV deal.
