STANFORD, Calif. - Justin Davis had 17 points and 13 rebounds and led a second-half charge for No. 5 Stanford, which defeated Washington 85-72 on Sunday to remain undefeated.
Chris Hernandez had 13 points and nine assists and Nick Robinson added 13 points for the Cardinal, who shot 59.6 percent to beat the Huskies for the 12th time in the last 13 meetings.
Nate Robinson scored 16 points and Tre Simmons had 13 for Washington (5-5, 0-2 Pac-10).
Stanford (11-0, 2-0) welcomed the return of coach Mike Montgomery, who served a one-game suspension - the first of his career - during Friday's win over Washington State for making contact with an official during a game against Arizona State last season. Assistant Tony Fuller ran the team as Montgomery missed his first game in 18 seasons with the Cardinal.
Montgomery received a standing ovation when he walked onto the court before tipoff.
Gonzaga (10-2) won for the third time in seven days, while Montana (3-9) lost its eighth consecutive game.
Kamarr Davis, the Grizzlies' leading scorer, had 13 points before fouling out with 11:18 left in the game as Montana's strategy of aggressive defense failed to pay off.
