Ogwumike unanimous choice as preseason All-America

Stanford’s Chiney Ogwumike now has family bragging rights.

She accomplished something her older sister never could by becoming a unanimous preseason All-American.

“As old ladies maybe I’ll hold it over her,” said a laughing Ogwumike, who joined sister Nneka as a two-time preseason All-American. “But for now I’m proud to be part of this select group.”

Ogwumike received all 36 votes from a national media panel Tuesday, becoming the ninth player to be a unanimous selection on The Associated Press preseason All-America team. Brittney Griner, Elena Delle Donne and Skylar Diggins were all unanimous selections last year.

The Stanford forward was joined on the team by Baylor’s Odyssey Sims and Maryland’s Alyssa Thomas. All three seniors were on the preseason squad last season. UConn teammates Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Breanna Stewart rounded out the team.

“It means a lot to be on this team,” Ogwumike said. “I’m truly honored to be considered one of the best players in the country. It’s so hard to fulfill expectations.”Chiney OgwumikeCollege SportsStanford
