Ogwumike wins Pac-12 Woman of the Year

Stanford women’s basketball player Chiney Ogwumike on Wednesday earned the Pac-12 Woman of the Year award, becoming only the second Stanford athlete to receive the honor since its inception in 2006. By receiving the honor, Ogwumike received an automatic nomination for the NCAA Woman of the Year award.

Ogwumike finished her bachelors degree in international relations this past winter and began training with a different “S” on her jersey when she was drafted as the first pick overall to the Connecticut Sun in the WNBA draft.

Stanford’s most decorated women’s basketball player ended her career on the Farm with the John R. Wooden Award for national player of the year, while also earning Pac-12 Player and Defensive Player of the Year honors. Ogwumike helped lead her Cardinal squad to its sixth Final Four appearance in seven years, averaging 26.1 ppg, 12.1 rpg and a 60 percent shooting percentage this past season. In addition, the All-American ended her career on the Farm as the Pac-12’s (and thereby Stanford’s) all-time leading scorer and rebounder. Off the court, she won the Pac-12 Scholar Athlete of the Year award and was named the 2014 Capital One Academic All-American of the Year.

The Pac-12 Woman of the Year honor is given to a graduating student-athlete who has excelled through academic achievement, athletic excellence, community service and leadership. In addition to being a full-time student and athlete, Ogwumike managed to travel abroad to Nigeria to intern with the Nigerian Ministry of Petroleum, while also working for the charity “Access 2 Success” to raise funds for building new basketball courts for local Nigerian youth.
