SEATTLE — Kelsey Plum had 23 points, Talia Walton added 22 and Washington topped No. 17 UCLA 64-56 on Friday Night.

Washington (13-4, 4-2 Pac-12) took the lead for good with an 11-2 run that ended at 55-48 with 6:32 left. The Bruins (11-5, 3-2) stayed close until missing all seven field-goal attempts over the last 2:52.

Washington announced on its website Wednesday that starter Brianna Ruiz would miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in her left knee. She was injured going for a rebound in Sunday's win over Arizona.

Alexus Atchley, who replaced Ruiz, made two 3-pointers and scored all eight of her points in the first five minutes as Washington opened with a 14-0 run.

Kari Korver scored all of her 12 points on four 3-pointers in the second quarter to pull the Bruins within 30-26 at the half. Nirra Fields added 11 points.
