Ruthy Hebard of Fairbanks pumped in a career-high 30 points for the Oregon Ducks on just 15 shots.

She didn’t make them all, but it was close.

The 6-foot-4 forward sank 13-of-15 field goals and 4-of-6 free throws on her way to bettering her previous career high of 29 points in a 76-63 win over Washington in Seattle, Washington.

Hebard, of West Valley High fame, did her damage in the paint, where she used her size, positioning and skills to make good on nearly every shot attempt.

The Alaskan has a staggering shooting percentage of .641, which ranks No. 4 nationally among NCAA D1 women.

Hebard leads Oregon with 8.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocked shots per game and is second with 17.3 points and 1.4 steals.
