Stanford women’s basketball’s senior forward Nnemkadi Ogwumike was named the United States Basketball Writer’s Association National Player of the Week on Tuesday following her career-best performance in a 97-80 win over sixth-ranked Tennessee on Dec. 20.
The award came a day after Ogwumike was also named Bank of the West Pac-12 Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season.
The senior forward set new career highs with 42 points and 19 field goals (in 27 attempts) while grabbing 17 rebounds in the win against the Vols. She also added three assists and a pair of blocks.
Stanford (9-1) opens Pac-12 play this week, visiting USC on Thursday before closing the weekend at UCLA at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
