Eight triple doubles.

Most players dream of having at least one triple double in their career and Sabrina Ionescu has eight already – she’s only a sophomore for the Oregon Ducks.

Sunday afternoon, as the No. 10 Ducks hosted the Washington Huskies, Ionescu put on a clinic as she tallied 24 points, pulled down 14 rebounds and had 10 assists as she became the NCAA’s All-Time leader in career triple doubles.

Even more impressive, the sensational sophomore made history by collecting her eight triple doubles in only 48 games. Suzie McConnell (Penn State) and Louella Tomlinson (Saint Mary’s) previously were tied with the Duck star – it took them 128 and 125 games, respectfully.

Sunday night, this play gave Ionescu her historical triple-double.

Not only did Ionescu make history in the win, Oregon’s head coach Kelly Graves picked up win 500 in his career.
