Two Notre Dame women’s basketball alumnae earned All-WNBA honors over the weekend. 2019 graduate Arike Ogunbowale received a First Team nod, while 2013 graduate Skylar Diggins-Smith landed on the Second Team.
Ogunbowale earned her first All-WNBA award in just her second season. The Milwaukee native averaged a league-leading 22.8 points per game, thus claiming the 2020 WNBA Peak Award for scoring.
A 2019 WNBA All-Rookie Team selection, Ogunbowale scored at least 14 points in every game this season. She also recorded four games with at least 30 points, including a career-high of 39 against the Washington Mystics on Sept. 6.
Next, Diggins-Smith collected her fourth All-WNBA honor, previously being named in 2014, 2017 and 2018. The 5-9 guard, who did not play in 2019 following the birth of her son, averaged 17.7 points (seventh in the WNBA) and 4.2 assists (10th).
