ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Washington women's basketball team set a defensive record and won the second of its two games in the Great Alaska Shootout on Wednesday afternoon, beating San Jose State 49-27 before 4,641 at Sullivan Arena.

The Huskies' 27 points allowed were the fewest in the tournament's history. The previous record was set by San Diego State in a 71-34 victory over Notre Dame in 1981.

Washington improved to 2-2 on the season and took third place in the four-team tournament, while San Jose State hit 0-6 overall.

Junior Kristi Kingma led the Huskies with 14 points. Freshman Mercedes Wetmore added 10 points.

After the game, Wetmore glanced at the stat sheet said it was her lone turnover that made her proud.

"I know as a point guard you can't make a lot of mistakes," Wetmore said. "It's about leading the team and putting them in position to win, so one turnover really reflects well about my game."

Over the course of the two tournament games in Alaska, Kingma totaled 44 points.

No San Jose State player scored more than seven points and the Spartans shot only 27.3 percent from the field.

Washington's next game is Dec. 1 at Utah. That gives the team a week off to recuperate. Several players are mending injuries: Regina Rogers (hamstring), Sarah Morton (ankle) and Mollie Williams (ankle). Williams played just seven minutes Wednesday as coach Tia Jackson wanted to limit her time on the court.
