HOUSTON - Number 13 for the Cy Woods girls basketball team is no stranger to basketball success. In fact, with a last name of Ogwumike, Erica knows all about what it takes to win.
Her sisters Nneka and Chiney were stars at Cy Fair before they went on to great careers at Stanford, but Erica’s parents insisted she and her other sister Olivia attend Cy Woods a move that has worked out very well.
As a junior, Erica is the leading scorer and rebounder for the Wildcats. She’s great at getting to basket, finding her open teammates but this season, she’s worked on her outside game, which she admits hasn’t been easy.
The self proclaimed Chipotle fan is a success off the court as well in the classroom and someday, she would like to play at the next level.
However, finishing what has been a great season so far is much more important.
