All In on Five: Betnijah Laney, Sabrina Ionescu have Liberty rolling past expectations

  All In on Five: Betnijah Laney, Sabrina Ionescu have Liberty rolling past expectations The New York Liberty (5-1) are the most surprising story of the young 2021 campaign. The success goes beyond the return of 2020 No. 1 overall pick Sabrina Ionescu, but in explaining the team’s best season-opening streak since 2007, the triple-double queen is a good place to start. Ionescu was named the first Eastern Conference Player of the Week after her historic triple-double and showed again Monday night how she earned it. The former Oregon superstar will do whatever is needed that night for the team, whether it be scoring in droves or dishing out no-look assists or pulling down rebounds. And you don’t want to get in a close game against her.
