PULLMAN, Wash. – 

The No. 9 Ducks (23-4, 12-2 Pac-12) swept the weekend road trip with the Washington schools and, with 12, have their most league wins since the 2004-05 season when they went 12-6.

1K DUO: With 16 first half points, Ruthy Hebard reached 1,000 career points…Sabrina Ionescu joined her in the 1K club on a bucket in the fourth quarter…The pair joined Jillian Alleyne as the only sophomores in UO history to reach the milestone...Oregon now has three active 1,000 career point scorers in Ionescu, Hebard and Lexi Bando, who reached the mark last season.

HOW IT HAPPENED: Oregon opened the game 7-of-7 from the field but WSU was equally hot, going 4-of-5 from three and the Ducks led, 15-14 at the media timeout in the first quarter. Oregon pulled away late in the first as the Ducks continued to shoot the ball well, going 12-of-13 to own a 26-20 lead. 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.

The Ducks remained hot in the second quarter. Oregon led by as much as 15 in the second quarter and took a 48-34 lead into halftime. Oregon shot 80 percent 20-of-25 shooting while Ruthy Hebard was 7-for-7 for 16 points in the first half, giving her 1,000 in her career.

After the blistering first half, Oregon cooled down in the third. The Ducks went just 6-of-17 in the third quarter, including 2-of-8 from three. However, the Ducks still owned a 10-point lead going to the fourth quarter, 66-56.

WSU continued to shoot the ball well in the fourth quarter and hung around. The Cougars cut the UO lead to single-digits on three occasions in the fourth but the Ducks went on to win, 90-79.

BANDO'S BACK: Senior Lexi Bando returned to court for the first time since Jan. 14 and went 3-of-6 from three for nine points off the bench. She knocked down her first three attempts.

BOX SCORE: Ruthy Hebard had a game-high 29 points two days after posting a career-high 30 points at Washington. The sophomore also grabbed nine rebounds, just short of a double-double. Sabrina Ionescu was also just short of a double-double with 17 points and nine assists. She also grabbed five rebounds. Freshman Satou Sabally was 5-of-7 for 17 points.

UP NEXT: Oregon plays its final two regular season home games next weekend against USC (Friday) and UCLA (Monday). The Ducks and Bruins, along with Stanford, are tied for first in the conference.
