“We had a lot of high and low moments tonight,” Washington head coach Samantha Leach said. “Moments were we played really well and moments where we struggled to execute.

“I was disappointed with our effort on the rebounding end of things,” Leach said. “Also, our lack of communication at times. I thought we did well making adjustments and showed growth by the end of the game.
