If you missed it the other day, Oregon, led by Sabrina Ionescu, knocked off Team USA in an exhibition game.

Ionescu was the reason why. She’s a brilliant talent. She has range and passing ability and is keenly competitive.

If you’ve never watched her play, check out this video and what WNBA star Sue Bird thinks. She’s a tremendous talent and someone you should pay attention to. You’re very likely to see her on the next Olympic team. Here’s another good video. She’s really special.
