Oregon Women’s Basketball: Sabrina Ionescu Leads Ducks Into Pac-12 Play

The Oregon Ducks open Pac-12 Play with a National Player of the Year Candidate in Sabrina Ionescu.

On Monday, the Oregon Ducks Women’s Basketball team was named the 10th Ranked Team in the AP Poll this week and Sabrina Ionescu was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week for the fourth time this season. She led Oregon in the Duel in the Desert in Las Vegas.

In two games against Texas A&M and Hawaii Ionescu averaged 22 points per game with 9 assists and 8 steals. She had a chance at a quadruple double vs Hawaii, but exited the game early. Her six steals vs the Rainbow Wahine is a career high. She is on a roll entering Pac-12 play later this week.

The strength of the Oregon Ducks Sophomore is her supporting cast. Ruthy Hebard has found inside presence early this season. Maite Cazorla and Lexi Bando have come on strong over the last three games as Oregon enters Pac-12 play this week.

Head Coach Kelly Graves started with a blue print and fans and players that have bought into that blue print are seeing results. Even Freshman like Satou Sabally have broken into the Starting Lineup and provided key points and have had valuable early season experience on the court that will pay off in the coming months.

Oregon will have a stretch of games on television starting Sunday vs Washington that stretches to the end of the season.

After a break this week, the Oregon Ducks Women’s Basketball team faces the Washington Schools. Washington State comes to Matthew Knight Arena on Friday for a 3 pm Pacific Time tip off.
