Oregon’s Sabrina Ionescu extends triple-double record in win

It took Oregon’s Sabrina Ionescu until the third quarter to make her first basket against Arizona.

Not that it mattered, with Satou Sabally and the rest of the Ducks on the attack.

Ionescu, a Miramonte-Orinda alum, posted her NCAA-record 16th career triple-double, and Sabally scored 18 of her 25 points in a dominant first quarter as No. 5 Oregon raced past visiting Arizona 93-60 on Sunday.

The Ducks (17-1, 6-0 Pac-12) scored the game’s first 20 points against the Wildcats (13-5, 3-4), and Sabally had 12 of them.

“That was a good win for us today,” Oregon head coach Kelly Graves said. “Obviously, the first quarter was almost as good as we can play.”

Ionescu had 21 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists for her sixth triple-double in a Pac-12 game. After missing her first six shots, she made six of her last nine.

“I just knew I needed to keep being aggressive, keep fighting, keep rebounding and everything else would take care of itself,” Ionescu said of her shooting. “I’m not too worried about it, but it was nice to see some of them go in.”
