Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu throws up courtside during WNBA Finals loss

New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu was feeling the pressure during Game 4 of the WNBA Finals on Wednesday night. 

After hitting a massive 3-pointer less than halfway through the fourth quarter with the Liberty trailing the Las Vegas Aces, the former Oregon standout hurried over to the sideline and vomited into a trash can.

At the time, New York was on the brink of losing the championship to the Aces, who had taken a 2-1 lead in the Finals. 

“It’s tough. It’s tough to win a fourth,” New York head coach Sandy Brondello said after the game. “It would’ve been nice to go and play Game 5 and then lay it all out on the table.”

“You know, we fought but it wasn’t our best game today. It’ll be a hard one to learn from, but in the end I’m proud of this group, of what we accomplished, and how we’ve come together as a totally new group and trying to build the chemistry and the togetherness and they committed to what we wanted to do. We’ve got to take it as a learning experience now and as we move forward remember how it feels and use it as motivation.”
