Junior Sabrina Ionescu has received a slew of accolades this season: she repeated as a Nancy Lieberman award winner for point guard of the year, was selected as an All-American by the WBCA, USCWA, and AP, and won the Wade Trophy as the most outstanding player.

Now, after a historic season of Duck Basketball, she’s won the biggest award of them all...

The Oregon Women’s Basketball team finished their historic season with a program first Final Four appearance and a 33-5, 16-2 record. Ionescu had an NCAA record eight triple-doubles this season which added to her NCAA career triple-double record of 18.

She finished averaging 19.9 points, 8.2 assist and 7.4 rebounds. Ionescu is the first Oregon Duck to win the Wooden Award. Duck fans already knew that she was the best player in the country, but it’s nice to have tangible evidence. One thing’s for sure, the hype train is officially off the rails for next season now that Ionescu is officially returning for her senior season.
