It’s no surprise Ruthy Hebard of Fairbanks is playing at a high level for the University of Oregon women’s basketball team.

But she’s probably pinched herself at least once this season to make sure it’s all real.

It got real today when the 6-foot-4 forward was named to the all-league team in the Pac-12 Conference – just one of only two freshmen honored among the 15 players selected.

Hebard, of West Valley High fame, led the league with a remarkable .632 field-goal shooting percentage and ranked top 10 in the conference in points and rebounds.

She led the Ducks in with 14.7 scoring and 8.4 rebounding averages in 30 games.

She’s on pace to break the Oregon single-season school record of .614 percent.

Hebard was also named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team.
