Jazmine Davis scored 30 points, including six 3-pointers, as the Huskies beat the Warhawks 81-77 at the Duel in the Desert tournament Thursday in Las Vegas.

UW survived foul trouble in the second half and a 12-0 run by Louisiana-Monroe that left the Warhawks (4-6) one point behind with 4:14 to play. But Kelsey Plum converted a three-point play for the Huskies, and a Davis 3-pointer and layup helped UW get some breathing room.

The Huskies (5-3) will face DePaul on Friday and Pittsburgh on Saturday.
