Stanford's Ogwumike adds to her collection of Pac-12 honors

It's another week and another honor for Stanford senior basketball forward Chiney Ogwumike as she was named Pac-12 Player of the Week for the sixth time this season on Monday.

It is the 15th time in her career that Ogwumike has collected the honor, and the second consecutive. This year, she has previously been named the conference top player on Nov. 11, Nov. 18, Dec. 2, Dec. 23 and Jan. 6.

Ogwumike earned her latest recognition following her performance during No. 4/4 Stanford's road sweep of Utah and No. 17/18 Colorado. She averaged 32.0 points and 12.5 rebounds and shot 64.1 percent from the field, and in each contest scored at least 30 points to bring her season total to eight 30-point efforts.

Sunday in Boulder she scored 34 points with 16 rebounds in Stanford's 87-77 win over the Buffaloes to post her 11th double-double of the season, and her sixth 30-point performance over the last seven games. This effort followed a 30-point, nine-rebound line in Friday's 87-61 win at Utah. Ogwumike even showed off some range over the weekend, hitting two of three 3-point attempts.

On the year Ogwumike leads the Pac-12 in scoring (27.3 ppg) and field-goal percentage (62.8) while sitting second in rebounding (11.8 rpg). Through Jan. 12 she remains the only player to rank in the national top 10 in scoring (third), field-goal percentage (seventh) and rebounding (10th).

Stanford, which improved to 15-1 on the year and 4-0 in the Pac-12 with the weekend sweep, heads back out on the road this week, visiting Arizona Friday then battling another ranked Pac-12 opponent Monday afternoon in No. 19 Arizona State.
