    SEATTLE (AP) -- Washington junior guard Cameo Hicks scored 13 of her game-high 17 points in the second half Thursday night in sparking the Huskies to a 96-75 victory over UCLA.

    Hicks, who made just one of four attempts in the first half, scored six of her team's points during a crucial 14-5 run to open the second half. The Huskies (12-3, 5-1 Pac-10) enjoyed a double-digit lead the rest of the way. The Huskies now are off to their best start since going 12-2 in 2002-2003.

    UCLA was led by senior guard Nikki Blue with 24 points. Sophomore forward Lindsey Pluimer had 19 points. The Bruins (9-7, 4-3) are now 0-3 on the road in conference play.

    With UW's Kristen O'Neill finishing the first half with successive 3-pointers, the Huskies carried a 40-33 lead into the second half. Hick's 3-pointer with just under 16 minutes left ended the 14-5 run and gave the Huskies a 54-38 lead.

    Four other Huskies scored in double figures. Dominique Banks had 16, O'Neill finished with 14, Emily Florence had 11 and Breanne Watson had 10. Florence, a 5-foot-5 sophomore guard, also finished with a career-high nine rebounds.

    Kayla Burt, a senior guard with a history of heart problems, left the game early in the first half when her defibrillator activated. She was taken across the street from Bank of America Arena to the UW Medical Center for observation. She was in no pain and was alert when she left.

    Washington has won seven of its last eight games.

    The Huskies return to the court Saturday against Southern Cal (11-5, 5-2).
