Rhyne Howard earns third preseason honor of the day, named to Wade Trophy Watch List

Make it three preseason watch lists released on Tuesday that included the name Rhyne Howard.

After being named the SEC Preseason Player of the Year and joining the Naismith Trophy Watch List earlier this morning, the rising Kentucky Wildcat junior guard finished off the day as the headliner for the WBCA Wade Trophy Watch List, an award handed out annually to the best player in women’s college basketball.

We’re beginning to run out of superlatives at this point. Howard will start the 2020-21 season as the most dangerous player in the country on a team with Final Four aspirations. The preseason awards are only going to continue throughout the year as they turn into postseason awards and recognition. She was previously named an AP Preseason All-American and a Lindy’s Magazine Preseason All-American. Last week, Howard was named to the Cheryl Miller Award Preseason Watch List as the nation’s top small forward.

Are there any other watch lists out there she can make her way onto?
