EUGENE, Ore. (AP)Sabrina Ionescu had a career-high 18 rebounds in her latest triple-double and No. 3 Oregon routed UC Riverside 84-41 on Monday.

Ionescu also had 16 points and 12 assists in her NCAA-record 20th triple-double, and second of the season.

Freshman Jaz Shelley scored 32 points for Oregon (9-1).

Jannon Otto led the Highlanders (3-7) with 19 points. Riverside shot only 25%, a season low for an Oregon opponent.

The Ducks opened the third quarter on a 15-2 run, including a trio of 3-pointers by Shelley. The newcomer from Australia made her first start in place of an ailing Satou Sabally and hit five 3s in the period as Oregon took a 61-28 lead.

About all that was left to be decided entering the fourth quarter was whether Ionescu would record double figures for assists. With six minutes left, she fed Taylor Chavez for a fastbreak layup and her 10th assist.

Both teams appeared to struggle with the morning tipoff time as Oregon led 17-9 after one quarter.


UC Riverside: The Highlanders are 0-4 against Pac-12 opponents this season.

Oregon: The Ducks are 5-0 in home games, winning by an average of 43 points.


UC Riverside is at Southern Utah on Thursday.

Oregon plays host to Kansas State on Saturday. After that, the Ducks begin their Pac-12 schedule.
