Kelly Graves points out Pac-12 Network ridiculously overlooking Sabrina Ionescu

Saturday evening, Colorado senior McKinley Wright IV became the first men's college basketball player in Pac-12 history to record 1,600 points, 600 rebounds, and 600 assists.

Notice how this article specified men's college basketball player.

It was last season Oregon Ducks guard Sabrina Ionescu became the only player in college basketball history, men's or women's, to record 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, and 1,000 assists in a college career.

Yet, the official Pac-12 Network Twitter account ignored that, despite Ionescu having been arguably the most famous Pac-12 player in a decade, by claiming Wright "is the only #Pac12Hoops player EVER with 1,600 PTS, 600 REB & 600 AST." 

The tweet caught the attention of Oregon women's basketball head coach Kelly Graves who rightfully dragged the account for its oversight.

In fact, according to Rob Mosley of GoDucks.com, Sabrina surpassed 1,600 points, 600 rebounds, and 600 midway through her junior season in 90 games. Wright did it in 121 games. 

It's probable it was just an oversight by the Pac-12 Network since Wright is the first man to accomplish that feat, but it should have been specified. 

Otherwise, it comes across as disrespectful to not just the triple double queen, but women's basketball as a whole.
