Plum, the national scoring leader, finished 15-of-26 shooting and added nine rebounds. She had five 3-pointers to give her 265, tying the Husky career record. Washington (10-1) won its seventh straight.

Marijk Vanderschaaf led Boise State (8-1) with 16 points.

CC Spokane 77, Everett 58: Bri King scored 17 ponts and Molly Webster and Kierstyn Russell added 15 apiece as the Sasquatch (5-1) beat the host Trojans (1-6) to win the consolation bracket at the Everett Classic.
