Rhyne Howard, Kentucky
The sophomore guard out of Cleveland, Tennessee, is having a stellar season for the Wildcats. Last year, Howard averaged 16.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. Her dominance on the court awarded her the 2019 WBCA NCAA Division I Freshman of the Year presented by adidas. This season, she is currently averaging 23.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. She has drained 130 out of 286, fields including 53 from the 3-point line.
Howard was dynamite in Kentucky’s last three games. She had a high-scoring performance against Tennessee and Alabama. Her career-high 43 points against the Crimson Tide matched the program’s scoring record. As a result, she was named SEC Player of the Week for the second time this season. Howard and the Wildcats are back in action on Thursday as they host Texas A&M.
Chelsea Dungee, Arkansas
In her second season with Arkansas, Dungee continues to be a spark for the Razorbacks. She is currently scoring 20.5 points per game, the same average she finished with last season. Dungee has taken the team to new heights this year as the Razorbacks are in the USA Today WBCA Top 25 Coaches Poll for the first time since 2014.
Dungee is coming off an outstanding game against Missouri on Sunday. She finished with 38 points -- a new season high. Dungee also scored 10 made free throws for the second time this season. The redshirt junior guard will be back in action on Sunday when the Razorbacks travel to Vanderbilt.
