LOS ANGELES — Jasmine Dixon tied her season high with 13 points and also pulled down 11 rebounds for her first double-double of the season, and No. 14 UCLA overcame a turnover-plagued first half to post its sixth straight victory, beating Washington 85-68 on Sunday.
Five Bruins scored in double figures. Atonye Nyingifa had 17 points, Markel Walker scored 11 and Alyssia Brewer and Thea Lemberger each scored 10.
UCLA (13-2, 4-0 Pac-12) committed 16 turnovers in the first half, the most the Bruins have turned it over in any half this season, and trailed the Huskies by one at halftime. They only had eight turnovers in the second half.
Jazmine Davis scored a game-high 19 points to lead the Huskies (10-5, 2-2), and Talia Walton added 18. It's the first time Washington has lost consecutive games this season.
The back and forth affair featured 11 lead changes in the game's first 30 minutes, and Washington held a 59-58 lead with 9:30 left. UCLA freshman Kali Korver then hit a long 3-pointer to give her team the lead back and start a 14-4 run, and the Bruins never trailed again.
The Huskies pulled within 72-67 with 4:35 remaining and had a chance to move within one. But Walton and Mercedes Wetmore each missed a pair of free throws, and UCLA responded by closing the game on a 13-1 run. That run included the Bruins making all of their final six free throws down the stretch.
