EUGENE, Ore--- The Oregon dynamic duo of Sabrina Ionescu and Ruthy Hebard became more dynamic on Wednesday when both players were named to the 2020 John R. Wooden Award Presented by Wendy's All-American Team.
Ionescu is named to the first team for the third year in a row. This is the first time that Hebard has ever made the first team. Ionescu and Hebard are the only two players in program history to be named to the first team.
During her senior season, Ionescu finished one of the greatest careers in women's basketball history. She became the first player in NCAA history to eclipse 2,000 career points, 1,000 career assists, and 1,000 rebounds. She tied her own single-season triple-double record (8). Her 2019-20 triple-doubles helped her extend her NCAA all-time record to 26.
Hebard also had an impressive senior campaign. Hebard finished her career as the Pac-12 and Oregon all-time leader in field-goal percentage (65.1). She led the Pac-12 with 9.6 rebounds per game. She also finished with 16 double-doubles.
Ionescu and Hebard are now finalists for the John R. Wooden Award. The award is widely regarded as the most prestigious award in college basketball.
The award presentation is on Monday, April 6, at 2 p.m.
