TUCSON, Ariz. — Soana Lucet had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Arizona raced to an 80-50 women’s basketball victory over Washington on Saturday.

Ify Ibekwe also had a double-double, with 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Wildcats. Brooke Jackson scored 15 points and Reiko Thomas 13 for Arizona.

The Wildcats’ 30-point margin at the finish was their biggest lead of the game. They led 32-20 at halftime and shot 51 percent in the game.

Washington was led by Laura McLellan, who scored 18 points. Sami Whitcomb had 16 for the Huskies.

Washington’s only lead came in the first minute of the game. Arizona outrebounded Washington 47-27.

Wash. St. 66, Arizona St. 62

TEMPE, Ariz. — April Cook scored 33 points to help Washington State snap an 11-game losing streak with a 66-62 victory against Arizona State on Saturday.

The Cougars overcame 28 turnovers and a 13-point first-half deficit to win for the first time since beating San Francisco 74-57 on Dec. 19.

Washington State had not beaten the Sun Devils since Feb. 28, 2004, in Pullman, Wash. The Cougars won in Tempe for the first time since 1997.

Kiki Moore overcame her 13 turnovers to add 16 points, five assists and four steals for Washington State.

Kayli Murphy had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Arizona State.

Cook and Jazmine Perkins hit 3-pointers to give Washington State the lead for good at 48-44 with 7:15 remaining.

UCLA 44, California 32

BERKELEY, Calif. — Darxia Morris scored all seven of her points after halftime, Doreena Campbell had three free throws and a key layup in the final 21/2 minutes and UCLA overcame a horrendous start to beat California 44-32 on Saturday.

The two teams combined for just 22 points in the first half, the fewest in a half since 2004. They also came close to matching the NCAA record for fewest combined points for a game before a late scoring surge by the Bruins.

The 32 points were the fewest by the Bears since they had 33 against Oregon State on Feb. 10, 2000.

Oregon 82, Oregon St. 62

EUGENE, Ore. — Taylor Lilley scored 23 points and the Ducks never trailed while beating the Beavers.
