Husky women win 5th straight game

By The Associated Press

TUCSON, Ariz. — Kristi Kingma scored 22 points and Washington's starters all scored in double figures as the Huskies defeated Arizona 74-65 Friday night for their fifth consecutive win.

The five players accounted for all but four points for Washington (15-5, 7-2 Pac-12). Jazmine Davis returned after being sidelined with a concussion and scored 13 points. Aminah Williams also had 13 points.

Talia Walton added 12 points and had a team-high eight rebounds for the Huskies, and Mercedes Wetmore scored 10 points.

The key to the game was turnovers. Arizona (11-9, 3-6) had 20 and the Huskies had six. Washington scored 26 points off turnovers compared to five for the Wildcats.

Washington led 39-30 at halftime and Arizona never got closer than six points in the second half.

After Arizona closed to 56-50, Kingma hit a three-pointer that began a 7-0 Washington run.

Arizona challenged one more time, making it 69-63 with 2:47 left, but Walton made a jumper to stop the run and Kingma made three free throws in the final 1:07 to clinch the UW win.

Davellyn Whyte led the Wildcats with 20 points. Kama Griffitts scored 15 points for Arizona, which has lost four in a row.

Arizona held a 46-33 edge on the boards, led by Alli Gloyd's nine rebounds.
