Sabrina Ionescu named WNBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week

·1 min read

The 2022 WNBA season is coming to a close, but former Oregon Ducks star Sabrina Ionescu made sure to leave her mark one last time before the regular season finale.

Ionescu was once again named the Eastern Conference’s Player of the Week last week after she averaged 23.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and five assists over the last three games for the New York Liberty.

Ionescu began the week with a 31 point effort in a blowout victory over Las Vegas. She shot 11-16 from the field and tacked on six boards, four assists, and three steals all in less than 24 minutes of work.

She added two more 20 point performances to cap off another excellent week, although she was less efficient from the field (12-33) and the three point line (4-17) in those two contests.

Ionescu earned the honor alongside Teaira McCowan of the Dallas Wings. It is Ionescu’s third Player of the Week honor this season, in addition to being named Player of the Month in June, and making her first career All-Star Game appearance back in July.

New York has four games remaining in the regular season, starting Monday against fellow Oregon alumni Satou Sabally and the Dallas Wings.
