TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Levi Randolph scored 16 points and Retin Obasohan had a career-high 14 to lead Alabama to a 66-54 victory over Stanford on Saturday in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament.
    
The Crimson Tide (23-12) will play Maryland on Tuesday in the quarterfinals, hoping for its second trip to Madison Square Garden in three years.
    
The Cardinal (19-15), last year's NIT champion, twice closed to within four points in the second half but went 4:40 without a field goal late.
    
Nick Jacobs and Trevor Releford each scored 10 points for the Tide.
    
Chasson Randle led Stanford with 11 points while Robbie Lemons had 10. Leading scorer Dwight Powell was 1-of-6 shooting for two points. He played only 24 minutes because of foul trouble and had eight rebounds.
    
Aaron Bright's long 3-pointer with 5:33 left made it 54-50, but it took Stanford more than three minutes to score again.
