SEATTLE (AP) Jazmine Davis and Kelsey Plum combined to score 35 of their 52 points in the second half on Thursday night to help No. 5 seed Washington women beat 12th-seeded Utah 75-64 in the first round of the Pac-12 Conference tournament.

Davis finished with 29 points, Plum scored 23 and Aminah Williams grabbed 11 rebounds for Washington (23-8), which will face No. 4 seed California in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Tanaeya Boclair and Joseta Fatuesi hit two free throws apiece to pull Utah (9-21) within three with 3:21 left, but Plum scored seven straight before Davis made a pair of free throws to make it 73-61 with 46 seconds remaining.

Fatuesi had 16 points and nine rebounds for Utah, which made just 5 of 20 from 3-point range.

Davis moved into sixth on the Pac-12 career scoring list with 2,240 points.

Plum took over first on the conference's single-season free throws made list (210) and eighth on its single-season scoring list (735).
