STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Ian Clark and his teammates let a 14-point lead in the second half disappear. Then they did something about it.

Clark scored 11 of his 15 points in the second half, including a go-ahead 3-pointer, to lead Belmont past Stanford 70-62 Sunday night.

"We knew that they were going to make a run," Clark said. "It's their home court, they're a good team, so we just had to take the run, come out of it, and compose ourselves. It's as simple as that."

Kerron Johnson added 14 points as the Bruins (3-0) rebounded from losing the lead when Clark hit a 3-pointer with just under six minutes to play. Blake Jenkins had 11 points and Trevor Noack 10.

"Momentum is a funny thing in sports," Belmont coach Rick Byrd said. "It seems to come and go without explanation. It really doesn't matter what sport it is. I don't know what happened, but we talked (about) what we needed to do."

There were eight lead changes before Clark hit his shot to push the Bruins forward.

"We were just playing every possession our hardest," Clark said. "We did that. We got the lead back and kept it."

Christian Sanders and Stefan Nastic each scored 11 points to lead the Cardinal (3-1), who had an eight-game winning streak, dating to last year, snapped. Chasson Randle added 10 points, and Josh Huestis recorded a career-high 13 rebounds.

Stanford missed its first 12 3-point attempts before Sanders nailed a long-range shot with 12 minutes remaining to play, breathing new life into the Cardinal.

"We have not shot the ball well, and that's somewhat of a surprise for all of us," Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said. "Everybody has to stay confident and keep believing. It will come together."

Andy Brown sank a pair of free throws with 8:24 left to put Stanford ahead at 49-48, erasing a 14-point, second-half deficit. The Bruins, who lost their previous four games against Pac-12 teams, built a 41-27 advantage less than two minutes into the second half.

Belmont, with 11 returning players from its NCAA tournament team of a year ago, handled the Cardinal run and continued to attack the basket despite losing the lead.

"They showed their experience and poise," Dawkins said. "They made shots when they needed to make them. It's tough when you shoot 31 percent."

The Bruins have made the NCAA tournament in each of the past two seasons and will be trying to make it three straight in a new league, the Ohio Valley Conference.

Belmont led 33-25 at halftime.
