Forward Talia Walton’s game-high 22 points wasn’t enough as the University of Washington Husky women’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. Plum’s 11 points is her lowest scoring mark since she scored 11 in a loss to Washington State on January 7th.
The Miners were led by Kristine Vitola’s 21 points and 14 rebounds and Kayla Thornton’s 20 points and 13 rebounds.
The Husky women finish the season at 21-14.
