The Washington Huskies only shot 22% from the three-point line, perhaps feeling the absence of starting guard Lexi Griggsby who left with a dislocated knee early in the first quarter to get an MRI examination.
The Dawgs also committed 16 turnovers while shooting 40% overall from the field.
However, a fourth quarter surge — in which the Huskies made four of their last four field goals of the game — brought the Huskies from behind to secure a 62 – 59 victory over the Eastern Washington Eagles.
In the fourth quarter, Washington shot 58.3 % overall and 50% from three-point range.
The Huskies’ fourth quarter offense was powered by Trinity Oliver’s seven points (2 for 3); as well as, perfect shooting by Lauren Schwartz with 5 points (2 for 2); and TT Watkins with 4 points (2 for 2).
Washington’s fourth defense was powered by Oliver’s three steals.

However, going forward the loss of Griggsby will likely put extra pressure on the remaining guards — Missy Peterson, Lauren Schwartz, Trinity Oliver and Nia Lowery — to produce offensively; they were a combined 10-27 overall in her absence.
