They see me breaking the triple-doubles record and getting scouted by Kobe me on ESPN+, and all of that. And they think, What an incredible journey. This is as good as it gets.”But the truth is? They’re only half right.”Yes, this has been an incredible journey.”But no, this is NOT as good as it gets.”At the end of her “Letter to Duck Nation,” Ionescu addressed the WNBA saying, “I’ll see you soon. Real soon, I promise.”Ionsecu averaged 19.9 points, 8.2 assists and 7.4 rebounds this season. After helping the Ducks to their second consecutive Pac-12 regular-season title, Oregon fell to Stanford in the conference championship.

I really thought that we had a chance to win that game — and even to win it all,” Ionsecu wrote. “So to make it that far, and then to fall just short..… it was pretty agonizing.​”So like she said, there’s unfinished business.last_img read more
