LEXINGTON, Ky. — University of Kentucky guard, Rhyne Howard, is one of 20 players on the Cheryl Miller Award watch list. That honor is given each year to the top small forward in women's college basketball.

She was second on the team with 74 three-pointers made and 68 steals and she was third with 75 assists and 22 blocks.
