Washington senior forward Chantel Osahor and Oregon freshman guard Sabrina Ionescu became the first player in each of the their respective programs to record triple-doubles this past week.

Osahor, who is currently leading the nation in rebounding, recorded the first triple-double in Washington history in a 105-53 win against Idaho on Tuesday, Nov. 22. She finished the night with 11 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists, with the latter two being new career-highs. It is the first-ever Pac-12 Player of the Week honor for Osahor.
