PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Though the college basketball season has been canceled due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, that won’t stop Oregon star basketball player Sabrina Ionescu from collecting postseason hardware.
Ionescu has been named the 2019-2020 Naismith Player of the Year. This award is given out annually to the top men and women’s collegiate basketball players.
