Ruthy Hebard's flawless shooting day carries Oregon Ducks women past Washington State

Oregon State recorded a season-high 49.175 on the vault and held a slim lead of 98.300-98.275 at the midpoint, but with a couple minor stumbles OSU couldn't hold off the Huskies in the latter stages of the meet. However, the Ducks still owned a 10-point lead going to the fourth quarter, 66-56.

The Ducks shot 50.9 percent from the field and made 11 of 28 3-point attempts.

Beaver men's basketball wins both games over weekend.

The Cougars played Friday's game without two starters, Caila Hailey and Louise Brown, and key contributor Nike McClure, who have all been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

The success the Beavers (13-11, 5-7 Pac-12) had in the high post area of the defense opened up all kinds of opportunities against the Huskies' 2-3 zone, which allowed them to stay within a manageable distance and eventually come back from 13 points down with eight minutes to go in the second half to set up overtime. Though the Cougars never drew closer than nine points down in the second half, they shot 11 of 20 from three-point range to keep themselves in the game. She also had nine rebounds and four blocks. Robbi Ryan led the Sun Devils (17-9, 8-6) with 14 points and Kianna Ibis and Courtney Ekmark added 13 points apiece.

Noah Dickerson bullied his way down low to 28 points and 12 rebounds, while Jaylen Nowell added 23 points for the Huskies (17-8, 7-5), who lost both games of their OR road trip. The Huskies (7-18, 1-13), who reached their first Final Four in 2016 and lost in the Sweet 16 last season, have lost six in a row and 13 of their last 14. Lexi Bando entered the game with under two minutes left in the first and promptly hit a corner three-pointer in her first game action since prior to the Civil War.


In the second overtime, Tres Tinkle put back his own missed shot to give the Beavers a 92-90 lead with 1:36 remaining. Washington was led by Noah Dickerson's 28 points and 12 rebounds.

The streak for Altman dates back to the 1997-98 season, when he was the head coach at Creighton.

Pritchard made a three-pointer and McIntosh scored to put OR ahead 16-8.

Washington State, which had three starters out due to disciplinary reasons, tied the game with 1.9 seconds left on a free throw by Marie Kostourkova.

Sophomore Sabrina Ionescu also hit the 1,000-point mark, finishing with 17 points, a game-high nine assists and five rebounds for the Ducks. Duke won without center Marvin Bagley, the ACC's leading scorer and rebounder, who sat out with a mild right knee sprain. Eubanks added 18 points and 13 rebounds. Flynn leads the team with 99 assists this season.
