SEATTLE (AP) — Jazmine Davis scored 21 points, Aminah Williams added a career-high 20, and Washington beat No. 7 Oregon State 76-67 Friday night.
Kelsey Plum, the Pac-12’s leading scorer, had 17 points for the Huskies, although the Beavers’ defense made her scoring chances tough to come by. Chantel Oshahor added a career-high 13 rebounds to help Washington (17-6, 6-5) snap a two-game skid.
The Huskies also beat a top-10 team at home for the second time this season, going along with their 70-49 win against then-No. 5 Texas A&M on Dec. 29.
Jamie Weisner had 17 points and eight rebounds, Sydney Wiese scored 16 points, and Ruth Hamblin had 12 points and nine rebounds for Oregon State (20-2, 10-1). The Beavers’ only other loss this season was at then-No. 8 Tennessee, 74-63 on Dec. 28.
The game was back and forth in the first half, with both teams using runs to grab six-point leads before falling even again.
In the second half, the Huskies started to pull away. Washington hit four straight 3-pointers — two each from Williams and Davis — to take the first double-digit lead of the game at 59-47 with 12 minutes to play.
Oregon State quickly countered with an 11-2 run, aided by a technical foul on Osahor during a fight for a rebound.
The Huskies never gave up the lead, though, and again pushed ahead by double digits. Plum’s step-back 3 with 5 minutes to play gave Washington a 71-60 lead.
Oregon State: The loss snapped the Beavers’ second 10-game winning streak of the season. Oregon State also started the season with 10 wins. The Beavers had an 11-game win streak last season. The school record is 14, set in 1982-83.
Washington: The Huskies have won their last three home games against top-10 teams. Last season Washington beat No. 3 Stanford, 87-82. The Huskies’ win against Texas A&M was their only other win in six games against ranked teams this season.
Plum was in the right spot to give the Huskies a 34-31 lead going into halftime. With the clock ticking down, Davis drove to the hoop but lost her footing. As she fell to the floor, she managed to pass back to Plum, who was all alone at the arc and nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
