PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Jill Noe scored a season-high 20 points to lead No. 12 Arizona State to a 66-41 win over Washington State on Saturday.
Noe hit all seven of her field-goal attempts, including four 3-pointers, and both of her free throws for the Sun Devils (21-3, 11-2 Pac-10). She added eight rebounds.
Adriane Ferguson led Washington State (5-18, 1-12) with 10 points. The Cougars, who have lost 12 straight, set season lows with 41 points and 22.8 percent shooting from the field.
Arizona State led 35-15 at the break and scored the first seven points of the second half.
The Sun Devils have defeated the Cougars in six straight games and 19 of the last 20.
Senior forward Kate Benz, who had started in all 106 of Washington State's previous games the past four seasons, scored six points in 25 minutes off the bench. She has been hindered by a chronic back problem.
The Sun Devils shot 49.1 percent from the field and allowed a season-low in points.
