Oklahoman Super 5: Preston sophomore and OU commitment Chelsea Dungee is already a basketball veteran

GIRLS BASKETBALL — Chelsea Dungee is certainly a seasoned veteran at just 16 years old, having won the Nike Nationals championship in AAU and the gold medal with the Team USA U-16 team last summer.

Weedn also said Dungee shot 54 percent from the field, including 39 percent from 3-point range. She also has a 4.0 GPA and a 27 on her ACT.

“She’s just the total package,” Weedn said. “She’s got it all.”

With that kind of player, the Pirates became incredibly tough to slow down this season. They lost three games this season and none since early January.

It was winning the gold ball that meant possibly more to Dungee than her other accomplishments.

“About two weeks before the playoffs and everything, we really tried to get focused and work on things we needed to improve on,” she said. “I really think we did a good job of that and went out and executed.”

Now, Dungee said she is trying out in May for the Team USA U-17 team, while also looking to improve for next season and eventually OU.

“Even though my leadership has gotten a lot better, I need to continue to do that,” Dungee said. “My shot is decent, but I want to continue to work on that; Defense too. There’s just a lot of things I can work on.”
