Oregon Ducks sophomore sensation Ruthy Hebard of Fairbanks scored 24 points and played a career-high 40 minutes in an 85-79 loss to arch rival Oregon State in the annual Civil War series.

She sank 10-of-16 field goals to improve her season shooting percentage to .680 – which ranks 3rd in the NCAA.

The 6-foot-4 forward is one of only three players in the country to convert at least 130 field goals on fewer than 200 attempts.

Hebard, of West Valley High fame, is averaging 17.2 points and 8.1 rebounds in 19 games.

In two previous games against Oregon State, she had scored a total of just 12 points.
