That popping sound you just heard was champagne corks flying off in Palo Alto and in the houses of fans of Stanford Women’s Basketball everywhere. Stanford just landed the number one recruit for next year. Not just any recruit, but THE top recruit in the nation, and her name is Chiney Ogwumike, sister to current Stanford Basketball sophomore Nneka Ogwumike. Chiney Ogwumike, who looks almost identical to sister Nneka is a 6-foot-3 forward, and a basketball and volleyball star at her high school in Cypress, Texas. Lat year she averaged 21.4 points and 12.6 rebounds per game last season. Welcome Chiney and we would have been heartbroken if you chose Uconn and we had to watch you play against your sister. It is going to be a fun season next year, I-tell-ya-what!
