Editors note: Charlie Creme, Graham Hays and Mechelle Voepel each vote to determine espnWs national player of the week, which is awarded every week of the womens college basketball season. Michael Del Zotto Flyers Jersey Authentic .If recent history is any indication, the team that wins the national championship this season is going to score somewhere in the neighborhood of 3,000 points.Watching Notre Dames Arike Ogunbowale during the Preseason WNIT, one might think there is extra credit awarded if you get there by Valentines Day. Whether or not her thirst for points can help the Fighting Irish end up No. 1 in April, they sure helped keep the team there for now.Named the Preseason WNIT Most Valuable Player after she averaged 19.5 points in No. 1 Notre Dames four wins, including a team-high 17 points in Sundays 71-60 victory against No. 17 Washington, Ogunbowale is also espnWs first national player of the week for the 2016-17 season. (That distinction in this case encompasses both the past seven days and the seasons opening weekend.)By any measure, Ogunbowale excelled at putting points on the board over the past 10 days.For sheer artistry, she opened the season with a career-best 30 points against Central Michigan, a performance that required just 13 field goal attempts and 23 minutes.If scoring in blowouts doesnt do it for you, she also scored a team-best 18 points in a 71-67 semifinal win against Green Bay, each of those points needed against a team that nearly completed a comeback that would have added the Fighting Irish to a long list of giants slayed.And pitted against one of the nations proven scoring maestros in Washingtons Kelsey Plum in the final, Ogunbowale outscored the All-American 9-3 in the first quarter as Notre Dame jumped to a 25-8 lead and never looked back.The first time she touched the ball, Ogunbowale hit a 3-pointer from a step behind the line. The second time she touched it, she waited two whole dribbles before taking and making an elbow jumper. The third time she touched it, she missed a 3-pointer. Undaunted, she cut down the lane, took a pass from the teammate who got the offensive rebound and hit a layup. You get the picture.It was at about this time a year ago that Ogunbowale left little doubt about her intentions. In a game against UCLA in the Bahamas, she suffered through a 1-for-7 shooting performance. Four days later, in her first game against a ranked opponent, she missed all six shots she took in the first half against Ohio State. Then she missed the first shot she took in the second half. She didnt make a shot until the fourth quarter (when they still very much mattered). She finished 2-for-14 from the floor.Most freshmen would be cowed. Most at some point would stop shooting.Ogunbowale just kept right on chucking. To her everlasting credit.With Brianna Turner now the object of every opponents defensive focus and still rounding into form after offseason shoulder surgery, Notre Dame needs others on a young roster to score. It needs an alpha presence on the court, someone to give the crowd a respite from quietly appreciating Lindsay Allen. Someone to bring them to their feet.Ogunbowale knows perfectly well that the best way to do that is to put the ball in the basket.Also considered:? Crystal Dangerfield, UConn; Asia Durr, Louisville; Jessica January, DePaul; Teniya Page, Penn State Mark Streit Flyers Jersey Authentic . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. Michael Del Zotto Flyers Jersey . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. http://www.hockeyflyersauthentic.com/ . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. FORT WORTH, Texas -- A rodeo promoter is suing two star calf ropers, accusing them of rigging an event in Arlington, Texas, last year so that they could get a cut of a possible $1 million prize.RFD-TV Events made the allegations in a lawsuit Tuesday against three-time world champion calf roper Tuf Cooper and the worlds current top-ranked roper, Timber Moore.
