The world is now on a first-name basis with Arike!

Arike Ogunbowale wrapped up a whirlwind week and a half Tuesday night when she was named the MVP of the Notre Dame women's basketball team.

It’s no surprise given the year she had and the way she dominated the Final Four.

But that was far from the only thrill.

She made the cover of Sports Illustrated and last Friday Arike was a guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

Many of you watched it right here on WSBT 22.

It included a surprise meeting with Kobe Bryant, her favorite player and they even played a little hoops on set.

Tuesday night, WSBT 22 spoke with Arike about the entire experience.
