Recruiting Summary for Ndjakalenga Mwenentanda
A World Of Opportunities For Washington’s Ndjakalenga Mwenentanda (Dakota News Now, 2/23/2021)
Now a junior, Ndjakalenga has put everything together to become one of the top recruits in the country.
“Her athleticism makes her absolutely unique. Somebody with that length, that can dribble the ball up the floor and play your point guard. She can finish around the rim like a big wing or maybe even a power forward type.” Washington Head Coach Jamie Parish says.

The 6-foot-2 guard/forward’s height and length set her apart immediately, and after the first few possessions, Biteler recalled thinking, “this is the female version of Kevin Durant.”
“(When you see a player like Mwenentanda), the first thing you do is look in the program,” WHS coach Jamie Parish explained. “Is that a junior? A sophomore? Nope, that’s a freshman who just single-handedly beat the heck out of our sophomore and JV squads.”
