Oregon Duck’s women’s basketball star Sabrina Ionescu continued her hall of fame career winning AP women’s player of the year unanimously.

The 22 year old senior was the first player since Breanna Stewart (2016) to win the award with a clean sweep. The point guard has had a superb season playing for the Ducks in the PAC-12.

She averaged a great stat line of 17.5 points, 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds through 33 games this season. However, her final season in Oregon was cut short through the COVID-19 pandemic.

She also came to fame this season, achieving an award reached by only one other player. After reaching her 1,000th assist against UCLA, she joined Courtney Vandersloot as being the only players in history to reach 2,000 points, 1,000 assists and 1,000 rebounds.

Sabrina Ionescu has also been in the news due to being the projected #1 pick for the upcoming WNBA Draft. The New York Liberty have the first pick, but there won’t be a draft night as usual. The WNBA have come out and said they will be holding a virtual draft due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
