Locked on Women’s Basketball: It’s Rhyne Howard season!
'If you look what the Dream are doing is creating space for Howard and they are opening up the floor for Howard to succeed'
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast and this one features host Alex Simon and Atlanta Dream’s beat reporter Spencer Nusbaum. Alex and Spencer break down Atlanta’s hot start and more on Rhyne Howard’s brilliance.
Spencer talks about Howard making an impact as a rookie for the Atlanta Dream:
“I don’t think a rookie in their first week in the WNBA suppose to win, Eastern Conference Player of the Week. They are 3-1 and that is a tribute to Rhyne Howard. What Howard has brought to the team is a team that might be ready to compete sooner rather than later.”
