The USA Women’s Basketball training camp roster was revealed by the USA Basketball Twitter account on Thursday morning, and former Oregon Ducks legend Sabrina Ionescu was among the 17 players listed.

Ionescu is joined by a handful of Pacific Northwest icons, including Breanna Stewart and Jewell Lloyd (Seattle Storm) and Kelsey Plum (University of Washington).

Notably absent is Sue Bird, the 40-year-old WNBA legend who has been a part of Team USA many times in the past. Her absence, along with the presence of young players – like Ionescu – signals the end of an era for international women’s hoops, and the reigning of a new group of young, superstar talent.

Ionescu is a perfect player to be a part of ushering in that new era, not just for her extreme talent on the basketball court but her outgoing personality and energy, which makes her must-watch basketball when she’s on the court.

Ionescu only played in three games as a rookie in 2020, but averaged 11.7 points, 6.1 assists, and 5.7 rebounds in 30 games (26 starts) for New York in the 2021 season.

Ionescu will head to DC to train ahead of the FIBA Women’s World Cup qualifiers in February.
