Sabrina Ionescu announces decision to return to OR in fiery letter

OR reached the women's Final Four for the first time and after taking Baylor to the final minute the Ducks vow to return to the sport's biggest stage.

In her first two seasons, Brown shared the responsibility of fueling the Bears' inside game with Kristina Higgins and Nina Davis. Here's how Baylor won. She was also awarded her second Nancy Lieberman Award, marking her as the nation's top point guard.

Baylor defeated OR 72-67 by pounding the post. They've got different styles of play: While Baylor boasts a high-low strategy, Oregon's offensive speed and proclivity for 3-pointers has earned comparisons to the Golden State Warriors.

OR was one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the nation this season, but was just 12-of-32 from behind the arc and shot 36.8 percent overall.

The 5-11 Ionescu hit a 3 with seven seconds left in the half, was fouled and added the free throw to take OR from a 33-30 deficit to a 34-33 lead. The Bears grabbed a 56-55 lead heading into the fourth quarter on the strength of a putback from Cox. She scored 12 in the second quarter and gave OR a 34-33 halftime lead after making a long 3 while being bumped to the ground by Baylor's DiDi Richards. And it went exactly as expected.

Forward Ruthy Hebard played for 35 minutes and battled against Cox and Brown. The Walnut Creek, Calif., product scored 18 points in the loss on Friday.

OR knocked down 12 3-pointers and attempted 32. In doing so, the Lady Bears became just the third team since the field was expanded to 64 teams to win each of their games en route to the Final Four by 25-plus points.

Sabally joined Ionescu in double figures with 16 points.

It is hard labor for opposing players who draw the short straws and are assigned to guard them. But that title - the first in school history - raised Baylor's recruiting profile, making the program a more attractive option to players with considerable size.

Despite that, Yuen said prior to the tournament that she felt "close" to being back to her best in a press release. Fassi, meanwhile, left herself an incredibly hard second shot and three-putted the tricky green to bogey the hole.

Together, Brown and Cox average more than 28 points per game, and perhaps more significant than that, they serve as a strong defensive threat, forcing opponents to live and die by outside shots.

The two players most visibly upset were Oregon's injured bench of freshmen Nyara Sabally and Taylor Chavez.

"I don't know what it;s going to be like not playing with her, not having her to pass me the ball", said Brown, "Because we have that relationship where we don't even have to talk so I haven't thought about it".

OR actually got off 11 more shots than the Lady Bears, but shot just 37 percent for the game and 36 percent on 2-point field goals. However, the Ducks rebounded and entered the tournament with the No. 2 seed. The Ducks couldn't slow Baylor down the stretch, going 1 of 13 from the floor to close the game.
