UK Athletics

On Thursday, UK Athletics released that women’s basketball star Rhyne Howard was named to All-American First Team. The sophomore guard is the first player ever to be named a first-team All-American by the Associated Press. Howard was second in scoring across the country this season, averaging 23.4 points per game. She also led her team in rebounds per game and total steals.

“Rhyne is the definition of an All-American and one of those rare players that impacts the game in absolutely every statistical category,” UK head coach Matthew Mitchell said.

Throughout her All-American season, she was named SEC Player of the Year, First-Team All-SEC and SEC All-Defensive Team. What a year it was for Rhyne Howard, becoming the fastest player in program history to reach 1,000 points. Howard is truly a blessing to the Big Blue Nation.
