Sunejiro Agbuke graduated from Baylor in just three years with a 3.53 grade-point average and is currently enrolled in Baylor’s Law School. While an undergraduate, she was named to Baylor’s Dean’s List three semesters, was a two-time Academic All-Big 12 selection and a four-time Big 12 Commissioners Honor Roll recipient. In addition, she received the women’s basketball team’s academic award and annually received a Baylor Provost Gold Scholarship.

Character

Agbuke is a leader in every sense of the word. She not only is a vocal leader but also leads by example. She has served as co-chairman of Baylor’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) for two years and has twice represented Baylor at SAAC’s Big 12 Conference meetings. In addition, she has attended Baylor’s Leadership Academy, which teaches leadership and other life skills, and has completed all three leadership training levels. Agbuke twice has traveled to Kenya and Zambia as part of Baylor’s Sports Ministry Team Missions. She had been a Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ team leader for four years and has organized service opportunities, mission trips, speakers and devotionals for spiritual development in Baylor student-athletes and coaches.

Community

Agbuke is tireless in her community involvement. Twice a month she visits the McLennan County State Juvenile Correctional Facility and also My Brother’s Keeper Homeless Emergency Center where she shares devotionals and fellowship with the youth and the homeless. For two straight years, Agbuke has participated in Feed My Starving Children, through which more than 100,000 meals were packed to feed starving children. She visits elementary schools to read to the students and local pediatric units to deliver stuffed bears each Christmas as part of the team’s annual Care Bear Drive.

Competition

Agbuke has emerged as a dominant force in the paint for the Lady Bears. In her three years, BU has won six Big 12 Conference crowns (both the regular season and the postseason tournament), won the 2014 NCAA Championship with a 40-0 mark, and advanced to the NCAA Championship Elite Eight twice. She started in 36 of Baylor’s games last season averaging 5.9 points and 7.6 rebounds and blocking 70 shots. With 104 career blocks, Agbuke ranks No. 10 on Baylor’s career chart.
