Stanford, CA (Sports Network) - Behind a career-high 29 points from Aaron Bright, the third-seeded Stanford Cardinal defeated the seventh-seeded Illinois State Redbirds 92-88 in overtime in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament at Maples Pavilion.

Bright shot 6-of-7 from three-point range and also dished out six assists for Stanford (23-11). Chasson Randle added 19 points and Dwight Powell netted 18 for the Cardinal.

For Illinois State (21-13), Nic Moore scored 25 points, while Tyler Brown netted 23 points and Jackie Carmichael tallied a double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds.

The Cardinal then caught fire, ripping off a 14-3 run to tie the game 74-74 with 5:14 remaining. After the teams exchanged leads, a pair of Brown free- throws for Illinois State knotted the score up again at 78-78 with 1:05 to go. Stanford had a chance to win the game in regulation, but a Randle three- pointer at the buzzer did not fall and the game went to overtime.

After the teams traded baskets early on in the extra frame, a Randle three- pointer at the 1:17 mark in overtime gave the Cardinal the lead for good.
