Sabrina Ionescu Named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

NEW YORK – JUNE 13, 2022 – The WNBA announced today that New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played from Monday, June 6, through Sunday, June 12. The honor is Ionescu’s second of her career.

Ionescu led New York to a 2-1 finish on the week, recording All-Star caliber averages of 22.0 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists in 33.0 minutes per game while shooting 62.1% (23-37) from the field, 53.3% (8-15) from three-point range and a perfect 100% (8-8) from the free throw line.

Sabrina etched her name into the WNBA history books yesterday when she earned her second-career triple-double of 27 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists against the reigning WNBA Champion Chicago Sky. She became the first-ever player to record a triple-double within three quarters, as well as the youngest player to record multiple in a career at just 24 years old.

This is the 45th time in franchise history that a Liberty player has earned Player of the Week honors, and the first since Natasha Howard on September 20, 2021.
