Stanford's Nnemkadi Ogwumike goes No. 1 in WNBA Draft



Nnemkadi Ogwumike is excited to be staying in California.

The Stanford senior was picked No. 1 in the WNBA draft by the Los Angeles Sparks on Monday.

"I'm grateful for the L.A. Sparks for picking me," Ogwumike said. "It means a lot and it's one of the highest accolades I've ever received. I'm looking forward to going back to Cali."

Ogwumike helped guide the Cardinal to the Final Four during all four of her seasons at the school, including this year's loss to eventual champion Baylor. The 6-foot-2 forward, who averaged 22.5 points and 10.2 rebounds this past season, is the first Stanford player to be taken with the No. 1 pick. Previously three Cardinal players have been drafted third overall.
