Chiney Ogwumike, who will join the Stanford women's basketball team next season, was honored as the girls' national high school athlete of the year during a ceremony in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Ogwumike, a forward out of Cy-Fair High in Cypress, Texas, is the sister of Stanford star Nneka Ogwumike, the defending Pac-10 player of the year. Chiney averaged 22.9 points and 13.9 rebounds last season.
"I was very shocked," Ogwumike said. "It's one of those things you hope to achieve, but you'd be happy with anybody else winning, too."
Brandon Knight, a guard from Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., who is headed for Kentucky, won the boys' award.
It was the fourth time in eight years that the male and female awards went to basketball players.

Brittney Griner is already bringing much more rep. Good for her though.
