Ionescu’s triple-double leads Oregon women past No. 15 UCLA


EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Lexi Bando scored a season-high 25 points, including five 3-pointers, Sabrina Ionescu had her fourth triple-double of the season and Oregon beat No. 15 UCLA 84-74 on Friday night.

Ionescu, a 5-foot-10 freshman, finished with 11 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Ruthy Hebard, also a freshman, scored 15 and grabbed 10 boards for her ninth double-double of the season and Maite Cazorla had 13 points.

Hebard’s layup opened the scoring and the Ducks (16-9, 6-7 Pac 12) never trailed. UCLA’s Monique Billings hit two free throws to make it 4-all, but the Bruins went without a field goal for nearly four minutes and Bando scored Oregon’s final seven points during a 10-1 run to make it 14-5 midway through the quarter. Hebard scored six during a 12-4 run that gave the Ducks a 15-point lead with nine minutes left in the half.

Nicole Kornet hit 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions to pull UCLA (18-6, 9-4) within six with 7:53 left, but Bando answered with a 3, a layup and another 3-pointer to make it 74-60 with three minutes to play and Oregon hit 10 of 12 free throws from there to seal it.

Jordin Canada had 20 points, six rebounds and seven assists and Billings scored 18 with 12 boards for UCLA, which has lost 2 of 3 after winning six in a row.

The Ducks shot 50 percent from the field, including 9 of 15 from 3-point range.
