As a three-year starter for the Lobos, Hurst owns the New Mexico program record for points scored in a single game with 39 versus Oklahoma during her true freshman season. In that game, Hurst buried nine three-pointers (2nd-most in a single game in program history) and was 14-of-24 overall from the field. 

Hurst was an All-Mountain West honorable mention as a junior last season.

Before college, she attended Bendigo Senior Secondary College in Bendigo, Australia and played for the Bendigo Spirit of the WNBL. Her father Joe Hurst played in the NBL in Australia, too. 

 

Oregon now has ten scholarship players.
