Chiney Ogwumike was named the Pac-12 women's basketball Player of the Year by the media it was announced Wednesday. The coaches honored her for the same award on Tuesday.

She is the Pac-12's all-time leader with 1,483 rebounds and needs one more to enter the top 10 of the NCAA's all-time career list.
Ogwumike is 49 points away from tying the Pac-12 all-time scoring record, having scored 810 points so far this season, which is also a single-season Pac-12 record. She is the only player in league history to have tallied 800 points in a season twice.
