Arike Ogunbowale scored a career high 39 points last night (12/24 FG, 4-6 3PT, 11-12 FT) leading the Dallas Wing to a 101-94 win over the Washington Mystics. This included the game tying 3-pointer that Arike made in the 4th quarter sending the game into OT. We all know from her collegiate days that Arike is one of the clutchest players in the league. There was no surprise when that shot went down. Arike is the current leading scorer in the WNBA averaging 22.2 PPG.

Arike added to her stellar career when she became the Women’s Notre Dame Basketball all-time scoring leader on Friday. She passed Skylar Diggins with 2,358 points and counting. Congrats to Arike on an amazing accomplishment. I’m excited to see how much more points Arike will add to her total before she plays her last game in South Bend.
