After Plum help the USA basketball team to win the gold medal in Lithuania, she flew directly to Seattle rather than heading home to San Diego and then going up to school. She was working out in the gym on the same day she left Lithuania. By heading directly to school it enabled her to sign up for summer school classes and get acquainted with the University and her teammates before the fall semester began. Her head coach Mike Neighbors noticed her desire to get started, which helped him with his decision to name her the team captain before the season started, a rare event for a freshman. During her freshman year, she set six Washington freshman records. Her total points scored (695) were the most ever by a freshman, and her single game high of 38 points is a freshman record. She earned freshman of the year honors for the Pac-12 conference. She averaged almost 21 points per game during the regular season.
One of the highlights of the year was a victory over the fourth ranked team in the country, Stanford. Plum was the high scorer with 23 points.Sophomore Year
