SALT LAKE CITY — Michelle Plouffe and Iwalani Rodrigues scored 17 points apiece to lead Utah to a 60-46 win over Washington Friday night.

Rachel Messer had 11 points and Taryn Wicijowski grabbed 11 rebounds for the Utes (15-11, 6-9 Pac-12), who trailed only once in the game, at 19-17 just past the midway point of the first half.

Plouffe also had eight rebounds, and Plouffe and Danielle Rodriguez each had four blocked shots for Utah. The final score was the Utes’ biggest lead in the game.

Jazmine Davis scored 22 points and Aminah Williams had 14 rebounds for Washington. But they couldn’t prevent the Huskies (19-7, 11-4) from falling back into a third-place tie with No. 17 UCLA in the Pac-12.
