SALT LAKE CITY — Washington State dropped its regular season road finale 59-47 to Utah at the Jon M. Huntsman Center on Sunday.
Freshman guard Lia Galdeira led Washington State (10-17, 6-10 Pac-12) with 14 points and redshirt senior Katie Grad scored seven points. Utah improved to 16-11 overall and 7-9 in conference play after shooting 42.9 percent and posting a 45-24 rebounding advantage. WSU was held to 37.5 percent shooting from the field and scored 16 points off 16 Utah turnovers.
Taryn Wicijowski led Utah with 22 points and nine rebounds.
"We came out with great energy and focus. We executed great on offense against a tough defense but Utah I thought won a lot of 50-50 balls in the second half," Cougars coach June Daugherty said. "We did a good job on their post players in the first half but they got going in the second half."
At No. 4 Stanford 74,
Chiney Ogwumike scored 27 points, grabbed a school record 24 rebounds and set a Stanford career mark with her 52nd double-double in a victory over Oregon.

Oregon State 56
Layshia Clarendon scored 26 points and California rallied from 17 points down in the first half to beat Oregon State, extending the longest winning streak in school history to 13 games.
