Stephen Curry praises Sabrina Ionescu's passion: "It's in her eyes"
The No. 4 Oregon Ducks picked up a dominant win over Cal in the Bay Area Friday night.
Among those in attendance to see the Ducks 93-61 win and to witness Sabrina Ionescu's 25th triple-double was Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry.
With him were his daughters Riley and Ryan.
After the game, Ionescu and the Curry's greeted each other.
In an interview with the Pac-12 Network, Curry says he's known about the Walnut Creek native since her junior year in high school.
The two have connected before, with Ionescu showing up to the Moda Center during the Trail Blazers playoff run in a Curry jersey.
"Shoutout to the walking triple dub," Curry wrote on social media.
They are fans of each other and their respective games.
"Every night, she just appreciates being out on the floor and bringing it," Curry told the Pac-12 Network. "It's how she makes her teammates better. It's the little things like that. Triple doubles are nice, too, but she just has it all."
When you see her on the floor, stats may mean a lot but when you watch somebody and the passion that she brings. It's in her eyes and the competitive nature that she had, you can't teach that. -- Stephen Curry
Sabrina could accomplish a feat no other college basketball player has accomplished: 2K points, 1K rebounds and 1K assists by this weekend.
She's just nine rebounds away.
Curry made sure to take time with the whole team afterwards, too, posing for photos.
Curry's daughters have gotten a lot of exposure to basketball in their lives, so far. But, will they be nudged to play?
"I don't know if they will play basketball or not," Curry said.
"But if they do, I'll put on some Sabrina Ionescu clips and be like, 'this is how you play the game'."Stephen Curry praises Sabrina Ionescu's passion: "Its in her eyes" originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest
