Kelsey Plum scored 23 points with eight rebounds and eight assists and broke the school 3-point record, leading No. 11 Washington to an 87-36 win over Savannah State on Sunday in Seattle for its eighth straight win.

With the first of her five 3s, Plum, who become the Pac-12’s all-time leading scorer in her last game, broke the UW career mark of 265.

Heather Corral came off the bench to score a season-high 15 points after missing the last four games with an injury. The Huskies played without Chantel Osahor, who leads the nation in rebounding at 14.2 per game, after she was hit in the head and played just four minutes in their last game, ending her streak of nine-straight double-doubles.

Washington (11-1) scored nine straight to start a 14-2 run to end the first quarter leading 21-8. A 15-2 run to close the second quarter made it 43-16 at the half.

Savannah State (2-8), made just 1 of 14 shots in the fourth quarter and finished at 24.5 percent (13 of 53).

EWU game canceled

Eastern Washington’s women’s basketball game scheduled for Sunday at the Air Force Academy was canceled after poor weather conditions prevented the Eagles from traveling to Colorado.
