She simply could not miss.
Well, technically she missed twice. But that’s it.
Former Oregon Ducks star Sabrina Ionescu dazzled the basketball world Friday with a record-setting performance to win the WNBA 3-pt contest at Michelob ULTRA arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
Ionescu made 25 of her 27 three-pointers, totaling 37 points, to win the contest and set an all-time WNBA and NBA record in the contest.
“I was just focused on making one a time,” Ionescu told ESPN’s Holly Rowe after her victory. “I wasn’t sure how many I’d miss, but I knew it wasn’t a lot.
“I’m happy to have won this and I’m thankful for the crowd, they were cheering me on the entire time.”
