Ogunbowale closing in on Diggins' scoring record

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - We're on record watch here in South Bend.

Last week against Boston College, Irish guard Arike Ogunbowale surpassed Beth Cunningham for the second most points scored in Notre Dame women's basketball history.

Now, Ogunbowale is just 34 points away from breaking Skylar Diggins' points record to become the program's all-time leading scorer.

Despite being so close to this huge milestone, it's the last thing on Ogunbowale's mind.

" I get told about [the record] but I am just trying to get wins however I can," Ogunbowale said. "That's just a really cool thing especially all of the players who have come to this school. To be to be at the top and to be remembered for that, that's pretty cool. I am just trying to get a W. As long as I win on Monday and Thursday that's all that matters."

Ogunbowale needs 34 points to break Diggins' record. However, in her entire career, Ogunbowale has never even scored 33 points in a single game. Her career high is 32 which she tallied earlier in the season against Marquette.

If Ogunbowale doesn't break the record tomorrow night against N.C. State, there is a good chance she does so back at Purcell Pavilion on Thursday against Duke...
