Sage Romberg and Ireti Amojo led WSU with six rebounds apiece.
(14) UCLA 85, Washington 68: Jasmine Dixon tied her season high with 13 points and also pulled down 11 rebounds for her first double-double of the season, and the Bruins overcame a turnover-plagued first half to post their sixth straight victory.
Jazmine Davis scored a game-high 19 points to lead the Huskies (10-5, 2-2). Talia Walton added 18. It’s the first time Washington has lost consecutive games this season.
