With the help of six points from Gena Pelz, No. 18 Washington finished with a 9-2 run to defeat Southern California 67-60 in a Pacific-10 Conference game Saturday at Seattle.

With the score tied at 58 and 2:10 left, Megan Franza was fouled while making a driving layup to put Washington ahead for good. Pelz grabbed Franza’s missed free throw and converted a three-point play.

Pelz then hit three free throws to seal the win.

Kristin Clark scored 18 points for the Trojans (8-10, 3-6).

The game marked the return to Seattle of USC coach Chris Gobrecht, who led UW to nine NCAA Tournament appearances from 1985-96.
