Sabrina Ionescu’s dominance is not just on the court. Friday, the Ducks Women’s Basketball star was named the John R. Wooden Award winner.

The Wooden Award is presented annually to the Player of the Year in both Men’s and Women’s basketball.

The to-be senior has now won three awards for her work in the 2018-19 season.

The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association selected her as the Wade Trophy winner, which is awarded to a player who not only excels athletically, but serves as a positive role model on and off the court.

Ionescu was also honored with the Nancy Lieberman Award as national point guard of the year. She won the award for the second consecutive season.

The Ducks leading scorer announced on The Players’ Tribune last week she would return to Oregon next season.

It’s safe to say, Ionescu isn’t done yet.
