NEW YORK (AP) Sabrina Ionescu stuffed the stat sheet once again while a pair of 10 seeds spoiled a nearly perfect day for the chalk on the opening day of the women's NCAA Tournament.

Ionescu posted her 10th career triple-double and the 16th in NCAA Tournament history, leading Oregon to an easy win over Seattle on Friday. The star sophomore accomplished the feat in just 29 minutes on the floor.

The day started with wins for the higher seeds before Minnesota and Virginia pulled off mild upsets against Green Bay and California.
