Davellyn Whyte is on pace to join Arizona's 2,000-point club.
She would be one of only two players in UA history to reach that milestone.
Whyte's ascension into the Arizona record books is a silver lining for the Wildcats as they continue to struggle through Pac-12 play.
On Friday night, Arizona (11-9, 3-6 Pac-12) lost to Washington 74-65 at McKale Center.
It was an ugly game for the Wildcats, as they committed 20 turnovers, forced six and trailed by as many as 17 points.
The ugliest moment of the game for Arizona came late in the second half as the Wildcats tried to cut into an 11-point Washington (15-5, 7-2) lead.
With 6:30 remaining, Whyte, a senior, suffered an apparent ankle injury and had to be helped into the locker room.
She returned, though, and limped through the final 3:41 in Arizona's fourth straight loss.
"Dav's tough," head coach Niya Butts said. "She'll be OK. She got rattled there late in the ball game, but she's good. She'll be fine."
Whyte finished with 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting, which brought her within 148 points of 2,000 with nine regular-season games remaining.
The only UA scorer in that realm sat on Washington's bench: Adia Barnes, a UW assistant coach.
Barnes is impressed with Whyte. Coming from Barnes - Arizona's all-time leader in points, field goals, free throws taken, plus its second-leading rebounder - that means something.
"I think she's a great player," said Barnes, who scored 2,237 points in her UA career. "So to even think that I have 2,000 points in comparison to a player like her is awesome. She'll probably break a ton of my records, and to just even have records that's comparable to a player of her caliber, I'm honored to be at the same level as her."
Barnes, who played at the UA from 1995 to 1998, is in her second season as a coach at UW.
She expressed concern for Whyte's health, believing that Whyte "didn't look like she was 100 percent" the whole game. But, Butts and Whyte's teammates weren't concerned after the game.
"She's tough," said Kama Griffitts, who had 15 points and seven rebounds. "I'm not surprised she came back."
Butts added: "She has a couple things that are bothering her, but she's a competitor. She's gonna be on the floor."
Butts was more concerned with the Wildcats' defensive performance and struggles with turnovers, which led to 26 UW points.
Arizona was able to hold Jazmine Davis, Washington's leading scorer, to 13 points on 4-of-13 shooting but still gave up 40 points in the paint to the Huskies.
"We just allowed them do what they wanted to the whole game," said Ali Gloyd, who led the Wildcats with nine rebounds. "They were driving to the basket and just doing what they wanted to do."
