EUGENE, Ore. -- With forward Satou Sabally sitting out due to rest, freshman Jaz Shelley gave the Ducks a spark in the 84-41 win over UC Riverside.

Shelley scored a career-high 32 points hitting ten three-pointers which is a single-game program record.

"I think I'm more comfortable now and my teammates have been so good," Shelley said. "This is the best team I've been a part of. When I'm on I know my teammates are going to give me the ball. I just got to be confident. I think I'm at that place now."

Shelley topped her previous career-high of 17 points which came against Long Beach State on Saturday.

"Remember the name Jaz Shelley. She's a good player," head coach Kelly Graves said. "What gets lost is she makes really good decisions out on the court, is a great defender. She reminds me a lot of Maite (Cazorla). She's got great feet, great understanding, great team defensive concept IQ, and to see her do what she did from the three-point line was incredible."

Oregon guard Sabrina Ionescu recorded her 20th career triple-double after tallying 16 points, 18 rebounds and 12 assists in the winning effort. 

With the win Oregon improves to 9-1 this season and will take on Kansas State at 12 p.m. on Saturday at Matthew Knight Arena.
