Miramonte's Ionescu in elite company

Summer vacation for Miramonte High's Sabrina Ionescu, pictured right, will involve representing the United States at the FIBA Americas under-16 girls basketball championships. Ionescu was named to the 12-member team following four days of trials in late May at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The U.S. under-16 team reported back to Colorado this week for training camp. The group then heads Cancun, Mexico for the FIBA Americas tournament, which runs June 19-23. Making the team was quite an honor for Ionescu, who emerged as a standout player for Miramonte as a freshman last season. She was one of just two players to make the U.S. under-16 team as an applicant. The other 10 players received invitations to attend the tryout.
