Pac-12 honors for Ogwumike

Nnemkadi Ogwumike scored more than 30 points in both of Stanford's victories last week. It was certainly welcomed in a 67-60 win over Oregon State, which followed a 93-70 win over Oregon two days previous.

No wonder Ogwumike was named Pac-12 Women's Basketball Player of the Week. She averaged 32.5 points and 15.5 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field.

Ogwumike also reached a pair of milestones over the weekend as she earned her third Player of the Week nod this season. She became the fourth player in Stanford history, eighth in Pac-12 history, to reach the 2,000-point and 1,000-rebound marks while recording her fourth and fifth 30-point games.

It is Ogwumike's seventh-career Player of the Week honor and Stanford's 81st all-time.

Ranked fourth in the nation in the Associated Press poll for the sixth-straight week, the Cardinal (4-0, 13-1) visited Utah on Thursday and will play at Colorado on Saturday.
