Ruthy Hebard of Fairbanks collected her 50th career double-double and the No. 3 Oregon women’s basketball team made history with a 74-56 victory over No. 4 UConn in Storrs, Connecticut.

The Ducks handed UConn its first home loss since 2013 and most lopsided loss ever at Gampel Pavilion, where the Huskies have gone 296-8 since the 1993-94 season.

Hebard made 10-of-14 field goals for and a couple free throws to score 22 points. She added 12 rebounds and two blocked shots.

The 6-foot-4 senior was a catalyst in Oregon’s dominating post game, setting screens and peeling off pick-and-rolls to get lots of looks at the rim.

She produced more points in the paint than the entire UConn team.

Hebard, of West Valley High fame, has 10 double-doubles in 22 games this season and is averaging 16.5 points and 9.7 rebounds per game.
