SEATTLE (AP) -- Sami Whitcomb hit an open 3-pointer with 4.1 seconds left to lift Washington to a 67-66 victory over Brigham Young on Wednesday night.

Whitcomb scored 15 of her game-high 25 points in the final 3:40 to rally Washington (1-1) from a 59-50 deficit.

Keilani Moeaki made 1 of 2 free throws to put BYU (1-1) up 66-64 with 22.5 seconds left. After a timeout, Sarah Morton dribbled down the clock until firing a pass to Whitcomb a few feet behind the 3-point line to set up the winning shot.

Haley Hall had 14 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead four players in double figures for BYU. Coriann Wood and Moeaki had 11 points apiece, and Mindy Nielson 10.
