Ogwumike was named C-USA Player of the Week a league-high four times and was also a CoSIDA Academic First Team All-American.
The WBCA selection committee uses an equation to determine an equitable number of nominees from each region. The number of NCAA Division I institutions in each region is divided by the number of NCAA Division I institutions overall to determine a percentage for each region. This percentage is then multiplied by 52 (the total number of desired finalists) to get the number of finalists for each region.
The 2020 WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches' All-America team will be announced on Thursday, April 2.
