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.
Ogwumike, also recognized as Defensive Player of the Year, was a unanimous pick for the second straight year. She led Stanford to a 17-1 Pac-12 record and 28-2 overall.
Ogwumike is the only player in the country to rank in the top 10 in scoring (27.0, 3rd), rebounding (12.1, 8th), field goal percentage (62.2) and double-doubles (22, 6th).
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.
Stanford opens the conference tournament Friday at noon against either Colorado or UCLA in Seattle.
