ATLANTA, Ga. — Former University of Kentucky guard Rhyne Howard is officially a WNBA All-Star. She was named Tuesday to the line-up as one of the 12 reserves for the game July 10.

Howard was taken with the overall number one pick by the Atlanta Dream. All she's done is average 16 points, 5 rebounds and three assists in her first 18 games. The Dream had 8 wins all of last season and are currently 8-and-10 sitting in 8th place out of 12 teams. The top 8 make the playoffs.

Howard is the first rookie to be named to an All-Star team as starter or reserve since A'ja Wilson in 2018.

All-Star teams will be selected by captains on July 2nd and the game is on the 10th in Chicago.
