Live online chat with Stanford All-American Chiney Ogwumike set for Wednesday

Stanford F Chiney Ogwumike

Stanford All-American Chiney Ogwumike will be available for a live online chat with readers on Wednesday at noon.

This week marks the end of an era at the Pac-12 Tournament at KeyArena in Seattle. The No. 4 Cardinal will play its final conference matchup without an Ogwumike in the lineup. Chiney, a 6-foot-4 senior forward, is the last of a six-year sister reign, Nneka graduating in 2012.

Nneka went on to become the No. 1 overall pick in the WNBA draft to Los Angeles and the eventual Rookie of the Year. Chiney began the season as the favored top lottery pick in April’s draft, but has since fallen behind stars like PG Odyssey Sims (Baylor) and F Kayla McBride (Notre Dame).

Former Storm coach Anne Donovan’s Connecticut Sun currently owns the top pick.

Either way, Chiney is a star and individual. She declined past USA basketball national team events to focus on school work to graduate on-time this spring with a degree in International Relations. She writes a blog for ESPN and has interest that range from fashion to music.

On Tuesday, she was announced as the Pac-12′s Player of the Year for the second straight time and Defensive Player of the Year for the third straight season. Ogwumike averaged 27 points and 12.1 rebounds in leading Stanford to a 13th consecutive regular-season championship.
