HOUSTON – Freshman Kelsey Plum scored 19 points, junior Jazmine Davis had 14 points, and sophomore Talia Walton turned in a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds as Washington earned a 66-55 women’s basketball victory at Houston on Wednesday night.

The Huskies (2-2) had been idle for the past 15 days.

“When you go on a road trip, especially after a long break, you don’t whether you’re rested or rusted,” UW coach Mike Neighbors said. “We looked rusted to start, but the fact that we were rested was what allowed us to hang in there.”

Led by Aminah Williams with 13, the Huskies outrebounded the Cougars (3-5) 50-39.

After scoring just two points in the first half, Walton found her shooting stroke in the second half, connecting on 3 of 5 three-pointers and scoring 11 consecutive points. Walton led the Huskies on a 13-5 run for a 46-39 lead.

“I was definitely in a rhythm,” Walton said. “I just wanted to be there for my team.”

Freshman Chantel Osahor made her debut with two points and four rebounds.
