Former Oregon superstar Sabrina Ionescu entered the history books on Wednesday.

Ionescu tallied her third career triple-double, tying the WNBA record as the New York Liberty defeated the Las Vegas Aces 116-107. She finished the evening with 31 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists, and is now tied with Chicago Sky star Candace Parker for the most triple-doubles in league history.

The third-year point guard also became the first WNBA player to ever record a 30-point triple-double.

That marked Ionescu’s second triple-double of the season. In June, she became the youngest player in league history to record multiple triple-doubles.

The No. 1 pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft, Ionescu is in the midst of a breakout season with the Liberty and is now averaging 17.2 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 6.5 assists on the season.

In four seasons at Oregon, Ionescu established herself as one of the greatest college basketball players in history and helped transform the Ducks’ program into a national contender. She is the all-time leader in triple-doubles at the college level (26) and was the consensus player of the year during her senior season in 2020.
