PULLMAN, WASH. - Freshman forward Jess McCormack scored a team-high 16 points to lead three Huskies in double-figure scoring as Washington downed Washington State, 61-46, in Pac-10 women's basketball action at Friel Court in Pullman, Friday night.
The win was the Huskies' first in Pac-10 play as Washington improved to 6-9 overall, 1-2 in conference action. Washington State fell to 3-11 overall, 0-3 in the Pac-10. The victory also improved the Huskies' winning streak in the all-time series with the Cougars to 25 straight games.
McCormack, who scored 10 of her 16 points in the first half, also grabbed nine rebounds, sharing team-high rebounding honors with senior point guard Emily Florence who also grabbed nine boards. Florence contributed 13 points and five assists as well. UW freshman guard Katelan Redmon had 14 points and sophomore guard Sami Whitcomb came just shy of a triple double with nine points, seven rebounds, a career-high nine steals and four assists.
Guard Katie Appleton led Washington State with 16 points and five rebounds. Guard Jasmine Williams also had 10 points for the Cougars.
After opening Pac-10 play with three-straight road games, the Huskies will return to Seattle to make their conference home debut hosting the LA schools next week entertaining UCLA (Jan. 10) and USC (Jan. 13). Sunday's contest with the Women of Troy will be a nationally televised broadcast on FSN.
