Give Rhyne Howard all of the preseason awards.

The star of the Kentucky women’s basketball team received another accolade Tuesday morning when the league’s  coaches unveiled their preseason picks. Howard was named Preseason SEC Player of the Year and Kyra Elzy’s Wildcats were picked to finish second in the conference.

Naturally, 2020’s SEC Player of the Year was also an All-SEC selection after averaging 23.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. A short list of Howard’s other preseason accolades:

  • Naismith Trophy Preseason Watch List
  • First-team AP Preseason All-American
  • Lindy’s Sports Preseason All-American
  • Cheryl Miller Award Preseason Watch List

Don’t blink. You might miss another preseason honor for Howard.
