Plum pours in 36, tops 3,000 points

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - COLLEGES -

Washington’s Kelsey Plum be­came the 12th player in women’s col­lege bas­ket­ball his­tory to top 3,000 ca­reer points, but she didn’t seem to think it was that big of a deal.

“I mean, it’s an honor to be part of that list,” the se­nior guard said. “But I was re­ally con­cerned about the win. You know, the Pac-12 is tough. Any given night any­thing can hap­pen and this is not a game we wanted to give up.”

There wasn’t much chance of that.

Plum scored 36 points and the No. 8 Huskies (17-2, 5-1) rolled past host Ari­zona 90-73 on Fri­day.

“Ev­ery­thing we’ve ever asked her to do, she’s done it,” Washington coach Mike Neigh­bors said. “And she keeps im­prov­ing.”

LaBrit­tney Jones scored 20 points for Ari­zona (10-6, 1-4). #17 UCLA 66, #10 Ore­gon State 56:

Jordin Canada had 18 points and 10 re­bounds as the host Bru­ins (12-4, 3-2) snapped the Beavers’ 12-game win­ning streak. Down five af­ter three quar­ters, UCLA outscored Ore­gon State 25-10 in the fi­nal pe­riod. Gabby Han­son led the Beavers (15-2, 4-1) with 13 points and Marie Gulich had 12 points and 11 re­bounds. #19 Ari­zona State 68, Washington 49:

So­phie Brun­ner had 20 points and 15 re­bounds to help the host Sun Devils (13-3, 4-1 Pac-12) win their fourth in a row. Chanelle Molina had 13 points to lead Washington State (8-9, 3-3), which got a scare when fresh­man Cameron Fer­nan­dez hit her head on the court af­ter tak­ing a charge. A school spokesman said Fer­nan­dez, who left the court on a stretcher, was ad­mit­ted to a hospi­tal as a pre­cau­tion and is ex­pected to make a full re­cov­ery. Ore­gon 59, USC 53:

Mi­ra­monte-Orinda alum Sab­rina Ionescu scored two of her team-high 17 points on a put­back with 1:05 left to put the Ducks ahead for good as Ore­gon (12-5, 2-3) de­feated the host Tro­jans (10-6, 1-4). USC’s Sadie Ed­wards scored 17 of her 23 points be­fore in­ter­mis­sion as her team built a 16-point half­time lead.
