Ionescu, a junior, was projected to go as high as No. 1 overall in the 2019 WNBA Draft.
But after Oregon’s 67-72 loss to Baylor in the Final Four on Friday, Ionescu decided to come back for one final shot at the National Championship.
I came back to the University of Oregon as a junior in 2018-2019. We made the Final Four.
And now I couldn’t be happier to announce that I’m coming back to the University of Oregon for the 2019-2020 basketball season.
I won’t predict exactly how far we’re going to go….. but I’ll just say this.
We have unfinished business.And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
Ionescu was eligible for the draft because she will turn 22 before the end of the calendar year.
