Chiney Ogwumike Biography

The first overall pick to the Connecticut Sun in the 2014 WNBA Draft out of Stanford University, Chiney Ogwumike is a three-time First Team All-American, two-time Pac-12 Player of the Year, three-time Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, four-time All-Pac 12 First Team and finalist for multiple national Player of the Year awards each of the last three seasons.

As the top pick in the 2014 WNBA Draft, Chiney and her sister Nneka made history, joining Peyton and Eli Manning as the only siblings ever selected number one overall in a professional sports league. The John R. Wooden Award winner and Pac-12's all-time leading scorer and rebounder's 26.1 points per game, 12.1 rebounds, 60.1 percent field-goal percentage and 27 double-doubles made Ogwumike the only player in the country to rank in the NCAA's top 10 in each of those categories. Ogwumike captured a gold medal with USA Basketball at the FIBA 3x3 World Championships in August 2012 and earned a gold medal with the USA Basketball World University Games team in 2011.

The 6'4" forward and Cypress, Texas native of Nigerian descent led Stanford to three Final Fours while distinguishing herself in academics, earning multiple honors for her academic success, including being named the 2014 Capital One Academic All-American of the Year and the Pac-12 Women's Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Ogwumike and Nneka have redefined the word "Nerd" through several music videos which they conceptualized and produced while at Stanford, celebrating the culture of the school in a movement entitled "Nerd Nation."

In addition to her basketball accolades and academic prowess, Ogwumike is passionate about giving back and empowering the next generation. She spent the spring of 2013 studying abroad in Nigeria where she successfully raised $30,000 to build a basketball court for underprivileged youth in an effort to break down barriers for girls in sports and instill confidence in the next generation.

In 2016, Ogwumike was elected Vice-President of the WNBA Players Association. In May 2018, Ogwumike signed a multi-year contract with ESPN to become a full-time basketball analyst. In 2020, she was added to the Forbes 30 under 30 list and she joined Lebron James' More Than a Vote Coalition.

Ogwumike recently made history becoming the first Black woman to co-host her own daily, national radio show on ESPN.
