“We have two players who have started for us this season who were out tonight due to illness,” Washington head coach Samantha Leach said. “Maddy Jenkins started for us this evening and did a great job; and Kassidy Hines, both of them had great effort on both ends of the floor.

“I was impressed with some of our younger kids tonight, too,” Leach said. “They got minutes they’re not used to. I just felt like, as a team, we did a really good job of playing together and fighting through some adversity.”
