How big has Rhyne Howard been for Kentucky Women’s Basketball this season?
Howard has been a star, building off of her historic freshman campaign in Year 2 for the Wildcats and put on a show last night as Kentucky took down California.
Howard finished with 29 points, including 19 of those points coming in the fourth quarter. She also hit the game-winning shot, a 15-foot jumper from the elbow with 3.4 seconds remaining to put the Cats up 63-61 and give her team the victory.
The win moves Matthew Mitchell’s team to 11-1 on the season and a major part of that hot start is due to Howard, who is now averaging almost 21 points per game to go along with almost 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
Last night’s performance was also the fourth time in the last five games that Howard has surpassed 25 points.
She’s among the best in the country and last night was even more proof of that.
