She has won a women’s basketball championship for Notre Dame, delivered two of the greatest moments in Women’s Final Four history in the span of a few days, has been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and has received a seal of approval from Kobe Bryant himself.

So what is she going to do next? Appear on “The Ellen Show.”

Per the Indianapolis Star, Ogunbowale was in Los Angeles for the show’s taping with the episode airing on Friday.

WSBT-TV Channel 22, the CBS affiliate for South Bend, is the Ellen DeGeneres affiliate for the area, so something tells us plenty of televisions will be tuned to that channel when Notre Dame’s latest “she-ro” appears. As will plenty of televisions in Indianapolis (WTHR, NBC 13) and Chicago (WMAQ NBC 5) where plenty of Notre Dame fans and alums call home.

As will Milwaukee (WISN, ABC 12) as Ogunbowale is a native.

She has been one to delve into the sports realm as of late. After the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics, she interviewed Canadian ice skating couple Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir about their success, if they will come back for another Olympics – and if they or if they are not a real couple.
