Nneka pursues global brand for WNBA

From the Los Angeles Times:

In just six seasons, Los Angeles Sparks star Nneka Ogwumike already has amassed a career’s worth of WNBA accomplishments. In the last year alone, she won a most valuable player award and drained a championship-clinching shot in the league Finals.

This season she is tops in scoring (18.7 points), shooting percentage (55.8) and free-throw percentage (88.3) for the playoff-bound Sparks, who improved to 20-8 with Wednesday’s 95-62 win at Washington.

But what lies ahead, beyond the playoffs, is her biggest challenge yet: elevating the WNBA in prominence.
