Well at least we have some positive news coming out of UConn city. Tina Charles has been named WNBA Rookie of the Month.
Great start for a wonderful young lady. Charles leads all league rookies in points (16.6 ppg) and rebounds (9.6 rpg). She started all five games and ranks in the top five in rebounds. She has scored in double-digits in each game, including two with 20 or more points.
Below are the highlights of Charles' month:
• May 15 vs. Chicago: Double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds in a 74-61 win.
• May 21 vs. Atlanta: Career-highs 22 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks in 97-82 loss.
