That’s incredibly impressive, particularly for a young lady whose primary responsibility was working the boards, pulling down the ball, and kicking it back out to teammate Kelsey Plum. All of that changed when Kelsey Plum heard her name called first at the 2017 WNBA Draft on behalf of the San Antonio Stars. Chantel Osahor heard her name called that same evening by the Chicago Sky as the 21st player selected.
But this is a new day, a new team, and a new role. Chantel Osahor fit well into the Washington Huskies strategy of offensive barrage. If Plum could not score, Osahor was ready to pick up the boards, reset the ball back to Plum or an open shooter, or score herself.

To throw off the other team’s defense, Osahor often set up at the arc and sank a crushing three-pointer
Or rather her second new team. You see, the day after the 2017 WNBA Draft, the Chicago Sky traded 6-foot-2 forward Chantel Osahor to the Minnesota Lynx for 6-foot-1 forward Keisha Hampton. Hampton was the 22nd overall player selected in the 2012 WNBA Draft by the Seattle Storm. She joined the Lynx as a free agent signing before the 2016 season, appearing in 27 games, where she averaged 6.7 minutes and 2.6 points per game.
