The Return of the Triple-Double Queen!

A day after losing to the Baylor Lady Bears in the Final Four, fans of the Oregon Women’s Basketball team are filled with joy!

Sabrina Ionescu has announced that she will be returning for her senior year!

At 6:30 PM, Ionescu tweeted out a link to a letter she wrote for Ducks Nation published at The Players Tribune. In it, she states that her and her teammates have “unfinished business.” Please give the letter a read, because there’s no one better to explain Ionescu’s motives than the G.O.A.T herself.

The return of the Triple-Double Queen gives Oregon a good shot at returning to the Final Four next year. Seniors Maite Cazorla and Oti Gildon are the only two players expected to leave from this year’s squad, and starters Ruthy Hebard, Satou Sabally and Erin Boley must be thrilled with joy to learn that the assists and wont be slowing down anytime soon.

With the additions of talented young players, including Nyara Sabally who sat out her freshman year due to injury but is rumored to be astounding, Oregon will be a popular pick to win it all next year.
