SEATTLE — Aminah Williams scored 14 points and grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds as Washington (9-3) won a hard-fought battle with Arizona State (8-5) in the Pac-12 opener for both teams.

Williams was one of four Huskies scoring in double fiigures. Talia Walton scored a team-high 19 points, Jazmine Davis added 17 and Kristi Kingma had 14.

Jada Blackwell came off the bench to lead ASU with a game-high 29 points.

Stanford 57, Colorado 40

BOULDER, Colo. — Chiney Ogwumike had 20 points and 11 rebounds, helping the fourth-ranked Cardinal get back on track with a decisive victory over the No. 20 Buffaloes in Stanford’s first game since losing the top spot in the poll.

The Cardinal (12-1, 0-1 Pac-12) never trailed as they rebounded from a 61-35 loss to Connecticut that not only snapped their nation-leading home winning streak, but ended their six-week run at No. 1.

Stanford’s swarming defense prevented Colorado (11-1, 0-1) from getting into any sort of offensive flow, as the Buffs scored just 14 points in the first half — the team’s fewest-ever at home. With Colorado’s loss, UConn and Duke are now the only undefeated teams in Division I.

Stanford ran its conference winning streak to 79 straight.

Chucky Jeffery led Colorado with 17 points.

California 55, Utah 50

SALT LAKE CITY — Layshia Clerendon scored 18 points and Afure Jemerigbe had 13 to lead the Golden Bears in the teams’ Pac-12 opener.

Brittany Boyd added 11 points as Cal (11-1, 1-0) got the program’s 600th victory and gained momentum heading into Sunday’s game at No. 20 Colorado.

Michelle Plouffe scored 16 points to lead Utah (9-3, 0-1), which trailed by 13 points with 6:10 remaining before pulling within three in the closing seconds.

UCLA 89, Oregon 80

EUGENE, Ore. — Atonye Nyingifa scored 18 points, leading five players in double figures, to help No. 16 Bruins (10-2) beat the Ducks (2-11) in the Pac-12 opener for both teams.

Nyingifa was 7-for-13 from the field. Nirra Fields scored 14 points, and Thea Lemberger and Kari Korver had 11 points apiece. Markel Walker had 10 points, 11 rebounds and six assists for UCLA.

UCLA led 50-32 at halftime and never looked back.

Jillian Alleyne had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Ducks while teammate Ariel Thomas led the team in scoring with 20 points.

USC 56, Oregon St. 55

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Cassie Harberts scored 27 points and Christina Mariacci and Kate Oliver grabbed 12 rebounds apiece as the Trojans (4-8) beat the Beavers (6-7).

Arizona 71, Washington St. 65

PULLMAN — The Wildcats (9-3) rallied from a three-point halftime deficit to beat the Cougars (4-8).
