Sabrina Ionescu made history Monday night in the New York Liberty’s 94-85 win against the Las Vegas Aces.
Her two assists pushed her to 601 in her career, making her the first player in WNBA history to have 600 rebounds and 600 assists through her first four WNBA seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
She also scored 25 points, bringing her to more than 1,500 in her career. She’s the fastest in WNBA history to reach 1,500 points, 600 rebounds and 600 assists, having done so in 102 games. Shannon Johnson did it in 141 games, while Diana Taurasi did it in 145 games.
And if you ask Ionescu, the Liberty are just getting started.
“We’re just scratching the surface to our potential,” she said after the win Monday.
Breanna Stewart, a front-runner for the 2023 WNBA MVP award in her first season in New York, agreed with that sentiment.
“The trust, it takes time to build,” she said. “Sab and I understand we attract so much attention and gravity. We understand if we are in a two-person game, how are they gonna guard it? They have to give something up.”
