Stanford, which shot 33.3 percent from the field and 20 percent from 3-point range, did not have a double-figure scorer until 7:29 remained in the game when forward Reid Travis made a dunk. Travis finished with 10 points. Guard Marcus Sheffield led the Cardinal with 13 points, and guard Robert Cartwright added 11.
The Cardinal (7-4) lost for the third time in four games while SMU (9-3) increased its winning streak to five games.
SMU took a 14-0 lead with 16:29 remaining in the first half. The Mustangs were never threatened thereafter, building as much as a 32-point advantage in the first half.
Stanford missed its first six shots before Cartwright ended the drought with a 3-pointer with 16:09 left in the first half. That cut the Cardinal's deficit to 14-3.
Brown and Moore combined for 21 points in the first half, outscoring Stanford, as the Mustangs led 48-19 at the break. Brown and Moore made nine of 10 field-goal attempts in the half. The Cardinal were 5 of 24.
