Obi, a 5-foot-10 senior forward who also earned WBCA All-American Honorable Mention honors for the Maroons for the first time since the 2011-12 season, averaged 12.5 points and 11.2 rebounds per contest, recording 15 double-doubles in the process. Her 302 rebounds and 75 steals were third-most in UChicago history.
Farrell ran the point and off-guard positions, and the 5-foot-6 junior returns after a sophomore season where she averaged 15.6 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.6 steals per game. She made 41 3's (.451) and shot 84.4 percent from the free-throw line, later earning First-Team All-UAA honors, along with Obi.
"One of the things I love about both of them is they relish doing the little things to make us great; they're never too good for that," Sain said of the duo. "They shine in 'effort statistics' – rebounds and steals – just as brightly as they shine in points. When your floor leaders embody doing the little things, it creates a higher ceiling for the entire group. What I'm excited to watch this season is how their floor leadership unfolds."
Junior guard/forward Taylor Lake (Second Team All-UAA) also returns after putting together numbers of 13.7 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game in 27 starts. Guard/forward Miranda Burt made 26 starts as a sophomore and chipped in 9.0 ppg and 38 makes from downtown, and senior guard Jamie Kockenmeister (54.ppg, 3.1rpg), who has the ability to shoot the 3 (27 makes) rounds out the returning starters.
