Oregon women’s basketball’s Satou Sabally is the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year.

Sabally, from Germany, worked her way into the Ducks’ starting lineup this season in which she has shot at 46.7 percent and 36.3 percent from 3-point range as a forward.

Sabally follows Ionescu, who won the Freshman of the Year award last year. Ionescu won Pac-12 Player of the Year earlier this evening.

Sabally’s career-high points came in Oregon’s win over UCLA at Matt Knight Arena earlier this month when Sabally scored 25 points.

Next season, Sabally’s younger sister, Nyara, will join her in Eugene.

The No. 1-seed Ducks take on the winner of Colorado or Utah in the Pac-12 Tournament on Friday.
