TUCSON, AZ -

The eighth-ranked Washington Huskies (17-2, 5-1 Pac-12) defeated the Arizona Wildcats (10-6, 1-4 Pac-12) by a score of 90-73 on Friday night in McKale Center.

Washington’s Kelsey Plum scored her 3,000th career point becoming the 12th woman in NCAA history to achieve that feat and the first female or male basketball player to do it since the beginning of the Pac-12 Conference.

USC's Cheryl Miller scored 3,018 during the Pac-10 era and Plum will likely pass that mark on Sunday when the Huskies play at Arizona State.
