Last night, women’s basketball sensation, Sabrina Ionescu made history against Stanford. Ionescu became the first-ever D-1 athlete to reach 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, and 1,000 assists throughout a college tenure.

In her freshman season, Ionescu started off her college career strong averaging 13.9 points and 5.6 assists. After a strong freshman season, fans realized Sabrina had star potential but never imagined she would amount to this level of greatness.

In her sophomore season, she only showed an improvement, averaging 19.2 points where she would eventually reach her 1,000th career point. Ionescu only upped her performance even more during her junior season averaging career high’s in points, rebounds, assists, and three-point percentage.

Now, in her senior year, as she awaits the WNBA draft, Ionescu has been historic, and record-breaking. Ionescu is now averaging 17.3 points, 8.9 assists, and 8.8 rebounds on splits of 51-37-92.
