Sabrina Ionescu Joins Elite Company: AP All-America First Teamer for Third Time
Sabrina Ionescu became just the eighth player in women’s basketball history to named an Associated Press All-America honors three times.
Ionescu received all 30 possible votes to become a unanimous selection. She became the first college player to rack up 2,000 points, 1,000 assists and 1,000 rebounds, while also smashing the NCAA record for triple-doubles (26).
The dominant senior averaged 17.5 points, 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds per game this year.
Ruthy Hebard joins Ionescu on the AP All-America first team with 21 first team votes. Hebard averaged 17.3 points and 9.6 rebounds per game in 2020-21.
Not to be forgotten, Satou Sabally earned a spot on the AP All-America second team, which gave the Ducks three of the top 10 players in the country. Sabally averaged 16.2 points and 6.9 rebounds per contest for the Ducks this season.
Oregon State’s Mikayla Pivec was named an honorable mention. She averaged 14.9 points and 9.3 rebounds per game for the Beavers.
