SEATTLE — Senior Kelsey Plum of the No. 11 University of Washington women’s basketball team (27-4, 15-3 Pac-12) entered Saturday’s game 54 points shy of passing the NCAA all-time scoring leader Jackie Stiles. The nation’s leading scorer put on one of the most dazzling performances in women’s college basketball, pouring in 57 points to eclipse that mark and become the all-time leading scorer on her home turf in front of the Washington faithful.

Plum set a new school and Pac-12 single-game scoring record to lead Washington to an 84-77 regular-season finale win over Utah on Senior Day.
