Sabrina Ionescu sets scoring mark (25) in McDonald's girls game win

CHICAGO -- Sabrina Ionescu is going to make one college coach very happy very soon.

Ionescu set a McDonald's Girls All American Game record with 25 points, including eight in overtime, and the West rallied to beat the East 97-88 on Wednesday night.

Ionescu, the only uncommitted player in the game, won game MVP honors. She tied the score at 88 on a pair of free throws and then made back-to-back 3-pointers to give the West a 94-88 lead.

"I think it is a mindset you go into, and it is kind of hard to explain, but you do anything you can do to win, and if that's hitting big shots, then that's hitting big shots; if that's boxing out a player, then it's boxing out a player," Ionescu said.

Ionescu, who also had 10 rebounds, is considering California, Oregon and Oregon State. She is from Orinda, California.

Amber Ramirez scored 21 points for the East on five 3-pointers. Notre Dame recruit Erin Boley added 13 points.

The West tied the score with 57.9 seconds left on Lauren Cox's 3-pointer. After an East turnover, the West had a chance to win in regulation, but Destiny Slocum missed a jumper.

Nadia Finagall, who has committed to Stanford, scored six of her nine points in the final three minutes of regulation to help fuel the West's late surge.

The lone Connecticut commit, Crystal Dangerfield from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, won the Morgan Wootten Player of the Year award. She finished with six points.

The East led 48-38 at the half. Ramirez, a TCU commit, had 14 points at the break.

Jackie Young, who is headed to Notre Dame, had 15 points and 10 rebounds for the West. She played against one of her future Notre Dame teammates in Boley.

"It was great playing against 24 of the best girls in the nation," Young said. "Just playing against Erin was an honor. Now I'm ready to play with her."
