  1. Excited to be back at Stanford

    Chiney Ogwumike

    The NCAA tournament is so sweet! We are so excited to play in the Sweet 16. If you asked me two weeks ago, I would not have envisioned spending my 22nd birthday in Iowa. But we were off to Ames and got two great wins against South Dakota and Florida ...

  2. Get ready for 'N-E-R-D-S'

    Chiney Ogwumike

    As a senior, I want to leave it all out there. I want to celebrate the family, friends, teammates, coaches, faculty and fans that have brought me so much happiness over the past four years. As expected, this happiness is portrayed through another mus...

  3. A hungry team can be dangerous

    Chiney Ogwumike

    A season can be full of highs and lows. Wins and losses. Triumphs and struggles. Valiant efforts that make you feel invincible. Sleepless nights replaying what you should have, would have, could have done. In the world of competitive athletics, I do...

  4. Disappointment can be a blessing

    Chiney Ogwumike

  5. A lot to celebrate for Nerd Nation

    Chiney Ogwumike

    Last week I was either living in the library or hibernating in my room. The short time I did sleep, I dreamt about school. Four long papers and three tests later, my brain is officially fried ... I have survived finals week! It is always a challe...

  6. Stoked for my senior season

    Chiney Ogwumike

    I'm back! First of all, I would like to thank espnW for giving me the wonderful opportunity again to share my voice with you all. As women's basketball players, we don't dunk (that often) or move with lightning speed, but we are special. Our game ...

  8. Chasing my wildest dreams

    Chiney Ogwumike

    Lions are not roaming through the streets. My ride is not the back of an elephant. I'm not living in a hut. I am in Africa, studying abroad in the country of my mother and father, a country with so much primitive beauty, potential, promise; I am in N...

  10. Bust a move

    Chiney Ogwumike

    The tourney is in full madness mode! No lead is safe. No team is out until that final buzzer sounds. We were so fortunate to play at home in Maples for the first two rounds -- and does Nerd Nation go hard! Our first game was competitive, large credit...

  11. Pac-12 title game a lesson in leadership

    Chiney Ogwumike

    From the beginning of the year, we did not know what to expect for this season. We lost our quintessential All-American, my sister Nneka, along with other instrumental cogs to the Stanford women's basketball machine: Lindy La Rocque, Grace Mashore, S...

  12. It's hard to say: I'm becoming a California girl

    Chiney Ogwumike

    One of the best things about college is being immersed in a new environment. You are independent. You realize very quickly you and only you are accountable for your success or failure. Nevertheless, when you go, you take a piece of home with you: yo...

  14. Time to dust off and make today count

    Chiney Ogwumike

    This blog is for all those players out there who got their (for lack of a better word) butts beat. This blog is not for David, but for Goliath -- that giant who got knocked out with a tiny, little stone. This blog is for those teams that are on the o...
