EUGENE — The “hustle boards” hanging in each corner of Oregon’s Matthew Knight Arena held the only suspense remaining in another blowout win for the Ducks.

So when Sabrina Ionescu snagged her 10th rebound in the fourth quarter, the crowd let her know what it meant.

The junior All-American extended her NCAA record to 15 triple-doubles and Ruthy Hebard scored a career-high 34 points to help No. 5 Oregon race past Washington State 98-58 on Sunday.

“It’s a nice feeling knowing that the crowd is even paying attention to that and behind me every step of the way,” Ionsecu said. “It’s nice that they’re so much into it and care about a record like that.”

Ionescu had 17 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for the Ducks (2-0 Pac-12, 13-1 overall), who won their sixth straight game. She became the 11th player in conference history to surpass 600 assists, and her 607th tied Oregon’s 32-year-old career record.

Hebard dominated inside, making 16 of 21 shots and grabbing nine rebounds, as the Ducks enjoyed a 62-30 edge in points in the paint and outrebounded the Cougars 45-26.

Satou Sabally added 25 points, mostly on driving layups, and seven rebounds. The 6-foot-4 sophomore from Germany has averaged 22.5 points and 8.8 rebounds over her last four games.

“She’s really become a matchup headache with her ability to take people off the dribble,” Graves said. “She’s a unicorn at 6-4 who can shoot it like that (and) is getting more comfortable in the post and can drive.”

Hebard had 19 points and Sabally 14 in the first half as Oregon rode a 10-0 run to open a 49-29 lead at the break. The Ducks then shot 21 of 34 in the second half for 72.2 percent to put the game away.

The only glitch in Hebard’s game was her 2-for-10 effort on free throws after coming in shooting 75.9 percent from the foul line.

As usual, Ionescu was everywhere, sliding on her knees for one rebound, snapping a sharp pass to Hebard for a layup to end the first half and stepping back for a 3-pointer to close the third quarter.

Chanelle Molina led the Cougars (1-2, 6-8) with 14 points and Borislava Hristova had 13, 10 below her average. Washington State finished 22 of 57 for 38.6 percent, its second-worst shooting performance of the season.
