Washington Huskies Chantel Osahor can rebound, score, and sink a shot from downtown. But it may be her three point shooting acumen which earns her a roster spot on the WNBA Minnesota Lynx
Washington Huskies Chantel Osahor is a Women’s Basketball version of the stretch four. While Osahor puts up lofty numbers scoring and rebounding, she also has a strong three point shot. In fact, the accuracy is so fundamentally sound that it prompted ESPN to analyze her shot on a video.
That’s not bad for an NCAA Women’s Basketball player. In fact, it’s recognition seldom awarded to any basketball player.
Great Play Deep Discount
Per the Washington Post statistics, Chantel Osahor averaged 15.8 points per game, 15.2 rebounds per game, and 4.1 assists per game. She shot 47.8 percent accuracy from the floor, and 37.2 percent accuracy from beyond the perimeter. That 37.2 percent accuracy, if maintained, places her as the second most proficient three-point shooter on the Minnesota Lynx Roster.
