TAMPA, Fla. — Kalani Brown walked off the confetti-covered court with satisfying closure on her collegiate career.

The all-American center scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds during Baylor’s 82-81 victory over Notre Dame in the NCAA championship game on Monday at Amalie Arena.

“Was the last thing on my checklist,” the 6-foot-7 Brown said before heading from the Final Four to New York for Wednesday’s WNBA draft. “Now I checked it off, so I’m happy.”

Sabrina Ionescu will continue filling her basketball bucket list at Oregon next season.

Led by the two-time first-team all-American guard, the Ducks will enter the 2019-20 campaign with the goal of winning the program’s first national championship next April in New Orleans.

“Something is happening here,” Ionescu wrote in The Players’ Tribune letter announcing she was returning for her senior season. “We’re building a program — and not just any program. We’re building a program that wins national championships.

“Starting, I hope, with this next one.”

Ionescu averaged 19.9 points, 8.2 assists and 7.4 rebounds as a junior. No other player in the country averaged over 15.0 points, 7.0 assists and 7.0 rebounds.

With 1,984 points, 792 assists and 756 rebounds over the past three seasons, Ionescu has a chance to become the first player in NCAA history to reach 2,000-plus points, 1,000-plus assists and 1,000-plus rebounds in a career.

“Those are iconic numbers,” coach Kelly Graves said. “I think you could say she was the biggest star of this year’s Final Four, men or women, and now she has a chance to be the face of college basketball for the entire year.”

Ionescu won’t be the only player with star power returning for the Ducks, who bring back the top four scorers and rebounders from the program’s first Final Four team.

Ruthy Hebard (16.1 ppg, 9.1 rpg), Satou Sabally (16.6 ppg, 6.2 rpg) and Erin Boley (12.4 ppg, 3.5 rpg) will rejoin Ionescu in the starting lineup next season.

Oregon loses senior point guard Maite Cazorla (9.7 ppg), who ranks second on the program’s career assists list behind Ionescu, and senior forward Oti Gildon (4.6 ppg, 3.4 rpg), who led the bench in scoring and rebounding.

“We'll have a chance to look back on this and realize that this was an incredible season,” Graves said after Oregon’s 72-67 loss to Baylor in the national semifinal. “We've got a lot coming back. This is going to be a team that's loaded.”

Sabally’s younger sister, Nyara Sabally, redshirted this season while recovering from a knee injury. If healthy, the 6-foot-4 forward could have helped the Ducks deal with Baylor’s twin towers, Brown and Lauren Cox, or filled in for Hebard after her injury at Oregon State.

“Nyara would have been a candidate for national freshman of the year had she played,” Graves said. “She loves to play down low, she gives us some size and would have certainly helped this year.”

Lydia Giomi, a 6-6 forward, gained some valuable postseason experience this season after missing Oregon’s previous two NCAA Tournament runs due to injuries.

Incoming freshman Lucy Cochrane, a 6-5 forward from Melbourne, Australia, will add some much-needed depth in the post.

“Lucy is built similar to Lydia, one of those players who is going to need some work,” Graves said. “But she’s played at a high level internationally, she’s a terrific athlete, she runs and jumps well and she’s ahead of the game defensively. She’s got a chance to develop into a really nice player.”

Graves could add Nyara Sabally to the starting lineup for more size or pair a new guard with Ionescu.

Taylor Chavez, who was having a solid freshman season before suffering a fractured foot on Feb. 22, is the leading candidate to take Cazorla’s spot.

“It’s frustrating, but it gets me hungry to contribute next year,” Chavez said of not playing in Oregon’s final 10 games. “Next year it will be great getting Nyara healthy and our freshmen coming in are amazing. I think we’ll look just as good, if not better.

“I’m excited for next year. Of course right now this (loss to Baylor) is going to burn for a while.”

Tears streamed down Chavez’s face as she answered questions after the Ducks’ were eliminated by the eventual national champion for the second consecutive year. The two-time Arizona high school player of the year averaged 4.5 points and gave the team a defensive spark in her 28 appearances.

“I think Taylor is the real thing,” Graves said. “She’s just wired like Sabrina. She’s a competitor and she’s unflappable.”

All three members of Oregon’s recruiting class are international players with guards Jaz Shelley (Victoria, Australia) and Holly Winterburn (Northhampton, England) joining Cochrane in the class.

The 5-9 Shelley is a point guard and Winterburn is 5-10 with a scorer’s mentality. Both players have international and professional experience.

“Jaz is considered one of the best point guards in the world in that class,” Graves said. “Our kids have had a chance to play with her. We’re going to miss Maite, obviously, but Jaz ultimately cane give us that kind of production. …

“Holly is kind of a wild card. She has talent, there’s no question about that. She is highly skilled and she’s perfect for how we play.”

Oregon’s other returning guard, Morgan Yaeger, made three timely 3-pointers during the overtime win over UCLA in the Pac-12 Tournament and a memorable rim-hanging shot against Baylor to tie the score.

“This year has been a year of sisterhood,” said Yaeger, who sat out the previous season due to back injury. “We’ve come together and formed this super tight-knit circle between us. Since I’ve been here we’ve never been as close, we’ve never had this sort of chemistry on and off the court. I think we’re going to carry that on to next year.

“No matter who is on the team, we’re going to have this legacy and chemistry that we carry on from year to year now.”
