TEMPE, Ariz. – Amanda Levens scored 20 points, including four of nine 3-pointers, to lead Arizona State to a 66-61 victory over Washington Thursday night.

The Sun Devils (13-4 overall, 4-2 Pac-10) shot out to a 13-6 lead and were up 35-24 at the half.

Washington (9-6, 4-2) scored the first eight points of the second half on a pair of 3-pointers by Meadowdale High graduate Kristen O’Neill and a basket by Cheryl Sorenson to cut the lead to 35-32 with 17:41 to play.

Arizona State responded with a 13-5 run to go ahead 48-37 on Betsy Boardman’s 3-pointer with 13:21 remaining.

The Huskies twice cut the lead to three after that, the last time at 64-61 on Guiliana Mendiola’s 3-pointer with 58 seconds to play.

But Arizona State made five of seven free throws over the last three minutes to hold on for the victory.

Kayla Burt led Washington with 15 points, and O’Neill added 14.

The Sun Devils had a 44-30 rebound advantage, 21-10 on the offensive boards.

Levens, who had her 10th 20-point game of the season, also had five assists.
