Forward Talia Waltonâ€™s game-high 22 points wasnâ€™t enough as the University of Washington Husky womenâ€™s basketball team fell to the UTEP Miners, 70-63, Monday in the Elite Eight of the WNIT in El Paso, Texas.
Walton, a redshirt sophomore from Federal Way, also pulled down a team-high eight rebounds in the loss. Freshman sensation guard Kelsey Plum scored 11 points and added six rebounds. Plumâ€™s 11 points is her lowest scoring mark since she scored 11 in a loss to Washington State on January 7th.

The Husky women finish the season at 21-14.
