    SEATTLE (AP) -- Andrea Plouffe had 23 points as Washington advanced to the championship game of the Basketball Travelers Classic with a 96-69 win over Saint Louis on Saturday.

    Plouffe was 9-of-16 from the field for the Huskies (2-2), who face Northern Iowa on Sunday. Cameo Hicks had 21 points and was 11-of-13 on free throws for Washington.

    Theresa Lisch scored 20 points for the Billikens (5-1), who will play the Miami (Ohio) Redhawks in the consolation game Sunday.

    St. Louis used runs of 9 and 7 straight points in the second half to keep the score within 4 at 57-53. But Washington then made a 21-3 run to make it 78-56 midway through the second half.

    Washington shot 44 percent and made 28 of its 36 free-throw attempts. St. Louis shot 39 percent from the field.

    St. Louis freshmen guards Lisch and Katie Paganelli, who had 12 points, each had six of the Billikens' 27 turnovers.
