STANFORD, Calif. -- Dwight Powell had 12 points and 15 rebounds to help Stanford beat Stephen F Austin 58-57 Tuesday night in the opening round of the National Invitation Tournament.

Aaron Bright added 11 points for the Cardinal (18-15), who won for the third time in four games.

Taylor Smith had 18 points to lead four Lumberjacks (27-5) in double figures.

The Cardinal opened a seven-point lead midway through the second half and maintained a slight edge the rest of the way. Powell blocked Desmond Haymon's shot with 41 seconds remaining and Gabe Harris came up with the loose ball.

Haymon also missed a shot in the closing seconds.

Stanford's Robbie Lemons, who hit a pair or 3-pointers, left the game with an apparent bloody lip or nose.

Bostic hit a 3-pointer in the final seven seconds of the opening half to give the Lumberjacks a 32-31 advantage into the intermission.
