    Grunfeld wins battle of GMs' sons

    LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) -- Dan Grunfeld scored 20 points, including eight in an 11-0 run to open the second half, and Stanford beat Brigham Young 62-53 Tuesday in the consolation bracket of the Maui Invitational.

    The Cardinal (2-1) will play Louisville for fifth place on Wednesday. The Cardinals beat Chaminade 93-63 on Tuesday.

    Grunfeld, the son of Washington Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld, had two three-point plays in the run that started the second half and gave Stanford a 39-25 lead.

    BYU (0-2) failed to score on its first eight possessions of the second half, missing five shots and committing three turnovers. The Cougars, who lost 86-50 to North Carolina (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) in the opening round, struggled with their shooting all game, finishing at 35.4 percent (17-for-48), and turned the ball over 19 times.

    Stanford, which lost 69-57 to Tennessee in the first round, didn't shoot well either, going 21-for-55 (38.2 percent), but the one big run was enough to hold off the Cougars.

    Jared Jensen had 11 points for BYU, which used a 9-2 run to get within 58-50 with 53 seconds left.

    Grunfeld wasn't the only son of an NBA general manager in the game. Austin Ainge, the son of BYU's all-time leading scorer and current Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge, didn't score and had four turnovers in 12 minutes for the Cougars.
