Nneka Enemkpali Joins GU Women's Basketball Staff

Former All-American at Texas named program's video coordinator

Enemkpali joined the Zags’ staff after an exceptional playing career at the University of Texas, followed by a stint in the WNBA, prior to the 2016-2017 season.

Enemkpali was drafted by the Seattle Storm in the third round (26th overall) of the 2015 WNBA Draft but sat out the season while recovering from a knee injury suffered during her senior season at Texas. Seattle signed Enemkpali to their 2016 training camp roster, but waived her prior to the start of the regular season. Not long after, the Minnesota Lynx signed her to a seven-day contract.

At the time of her senior season injury, Enemkpali was leading the Big 12 in rebounds, (10.6 per game) and double-doubles, (9). Despite the early end to her collegiate career, Enemkpali finished ranked ninth all-time in the Longhorns record book in total rebounds, (899) and 30th in points, (1,116).

Furthermore, her accomplishments landed her a spot as a Senior CLASS Award Second Team All-American, in recognition of excellence in the community, classroom, character and competition.

Out of high school, Enemkpali was the 32nd-ranked prospect and No. 12-ranked positional player by ESPN.com. She was McDonald’s All-American Team nominee at Pflugerville High School. She was also a First Team All-State volleyball player, and finished third in the 100 meters at the state track championships.

During her career at Texas, Enemkpali was on Wooden Award and Wade Watch lists, along with a Third Team Preseason All-American recognition by Sporting News in 2014-15. She was named All-Big 12 and Academic All-Big 12 her sophomore, junior and senior seasons. Enemkpali was also on the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll multiple times. She graduated with a degree in African American and African Diaspora Studies.
