Los Angeles Sparks coach Brian Agler is beginning to see something familiar in Nneka Ogwumike.
“I think the last couple of games, you’re starting to see the games she had a year ago when she was MVP,” Agler told the website Swish Appeal ahead of the Sparks’ game against the Indiana Fever on Monday at Staples Center in Los Angeles. “Where she was just so persistent around the basket, she was so tough to defend, she was on the boards, and she can hit threes now. She can step out, stretch the defense and hit 3-point shots.”
Ogwumike had 29 points for the Sparks in an 87-77 home win over the Connecticut Sun on Friday.
