Plum became the fastest women’s player in Pac-12 history to reach 2,000 points, doing it in her 88th career game. According to UW, she became the seventh player to score 2,000 points in 88 games or less since the NCAA began keeping statistics in the 1981-82 season.
Plum finished with 28 points against the Bears to get to 2,025 career points. As far as where she ranks on UW’s all-time list, she trails only Jamie Redd (2,027 points) and Jazmine Davis (2,277). She’s got plenty of time to build on that total. And as we learned recently, she’s not bad at a game of PIG, either.
