NEW YORK – SEPTEMBER 12, 2023 – The Associated Press announced today that New York Liberty guard, Sabrina Ionescu, has been selected to the 2023 All-AP Second Team.
Fresh off a breakout, All-WNBA Second-Team 2022 season, Ionescu averaged 17.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game in 2023––the only player leaguewide to average at least 16 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game this season.
Pacing the three-point record books in both efficiency and volume, Sabrina’s 44.8% three-point field goal percentage set a new WNBA single-season record (min. 200 3PA). On September 7, she broke the WNBA all-time single-season threes record, eclipsing Diana Taurasi’s previous 17-year-old record of 121 three-pointers from 2006; ultimately finishing the season with 128 makes across 36 contests.
Additionally, Ionescu’s +11.5% improvement in three-point shooting percentage (from 33.3% in 2022) was the largest single-season three-point percentage increase in WNBA history (min. 150 3PA in both seasons).
This award marks the fourth-year guard’s second career and consecutive All-AP honor.
