Stanford men earn share of Pac-12 title despite loss

   Because of freshman Billy Griffith of Fresno, the No. 24 Stanford men had to settle for a share of the Pacific-12 Conference title.
   Griffith pulled out a  3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4 victory over Nolan Paige at the No. 5 spot, giving No. 28 Cal a 4-3 win over the host Cardinal on Saturday.
   The Bears (17-7, 5-2 Pac-12) ended Stanford's winning streak at 10 matches, but the Cardinal (16-5, 6-1) earned a share of the conference title with USC. It's Stanford's first regular-season league crown since 2010.
   Stanford will be seeded No. 1 in next week's Pac-12 Championships in Ojai because of its 4-3 upset of USC last week at Stanford. The Trojans defeated Stanford in a nonconference match in Los Angeles earlier in the season.
