Chasson  Randle scored 17 points and Stanford put forth an excellent defensive effort in crushing 10th-ranked Oregon, 76-52, on Wednesday at Maples Pavilion. The  Cardinal (13-8, 4-4 Pac 12)  thrived from beyond the arc, making 8-of-14 shots  from  long distance. In  addition, they held  the Ducks to 34.6 percent shooting and forced them into 20 turnovers in capturing their third victory in four  games.  Josh Huestis and  Dwight Powell both posted double-doubles, with Huestis  tallying  14 points and 13  rebounds. Powell totaled 12 points and 13 boards,  while  Aaron Bright made  all three of  his 3-point attempts en route to  12 points  in the  victory.  Oregon (18-3,  7-1)  didn't even  show up  in losing its first conference game of the season. They trailed nearly the entire contest, as none of its starters scored in double-figures.

Green  Bay  Packers wide  receiver Donald Driver  is set to  call it a career. Driver,  appearing  on ESPN's "Mike and  Mike in the Morning" program from New Orleans on Thursday,  said he would make it official during a press conference on February 6  in Green Bay. He spent 14 seasons  with the Packers  and helped the storied franchise  to a Super Bowl title after the 2010 season.  The four- time Pro Bowl selection  is the club's all-time leader with 743 receptions and 10,137 yards, and sits third with 61 touchdown catches.

=== NBA ===

The  Memphis Grizzlies  have traded forward Rudy Gay to the Toronto Raptors in exchange  for  point guard Jose Calderon,  forward Ed Davis and a second round pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. Additionally,  the Grizzlies will send Calderon to the  Detroit Pistons in exchange for forwards Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye. Gay  had reportedly been on the trading block  for several weeks, as  Memphis' new  ownership group looked  to avoid reaching the luxury tax threshold  after this season as the tax penalties begin increasing at an exponential rate. Over 42 games  this season,  Gay  has averaged  17.2 points,  5.9 rebounds  and 2.6 assists. Calderon,  an eight-year veteran from Spain, is averaging 11.1 points and 7.4 assists per game this season.

Orlando  Magic  forward Glen Davis  fractured his left foot during Wednesday's loss  to the  New York Knicks. Davis  left the game early in the first quarter and was seen limping to the locker room. He did not return and the severity of his  injury  became known to  the team midway  through the contest. The injury could  sideline Davis for the remainder of the season. Coming into Wednesday's contest,  the  sixth-year veteran was  averaging career-bests in points (15.5) and  rebounds  (7.5) per game.  Davis had  been previously battling a shoulder issue, which caused him to miss 11 games earlier in the campaign.

=== BASEBALL ===

The  San Diego Padres came to terms with infielder Chase Headley on a one-year contract. The 28-year-old Headley had a banner year in 2012, batting .286 with 31 doubles, 31 home runs, 115 runs batted in and 95 runs scored.  He showcased his durability,  playing in 161  games, and  joined Dave Winfield as  the only Padres to lead the National League in RBI for an entire campaign. Headley also flashed the  leather, winning his first  career Gold Glove to go along  with a Silver Slugger  award.  In six seasons  with the Padres,  Headley owns  a .273 batting average with 67 home runs, 319 runs batted in and 312 runs scored.

=== NHL ===

New  York  Rangers captain Ryan Callahan  has a shoulder subluxation that will sideline  him  for 10-14 days.  Callahan suffered  the injury during a scuffle with Maxime Talbot in the third period of Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Flyers at Madison  Square  Garden. An  MRI exam  on his  injured left shoulder Wednesday afternoon  showed no major damage. Callahan's goal in the second period proved to be the deciding tally in the victory. It was his second goal of the season.
