She finished the season ranked eighth in the league in scoring and third in rebounding. This season Ugoka set a Virginia Tech single-season record with 16 double-doubles on the year and tied the longest streak in program history with six consecutive. She ranks 17th in the NCAA in number of double-doubles on the season. In addition, Ugoka set the Tech single-season field goals made record with 213, breaking the previous record of 212 set by Renee Dennis during the 1986-87 season.
