Former Rice guard and back-to-back Conference USA Player of the Year, Erica Ogwumike announced on Twitter Sunday that she'll be passing on the WNBA this season in order to pursue medical school in Dallas.

She was drafted in the third round of the 2020 WNBA Draft by the New York Liberty before being traded to the Minnesota Lynx on draft night.

Ogwumike was among the final round of cuts for the Lynx in late May. She also announced her intentions to continue training to compete in the 2021 Olympics and future WNBA opportunities.
