With no new UofL news we stay focused on our former Cards and their successes in the WNBA. Currently, we have four Cards playing in the WNBA: Angel McCoughtry, Myisha Hines-Allen, Jazmine Jones, and Kylee Shook.
All teams have played 15-17 games up to this point in the season and have just a couple weeks left in the season. It's a good time to see just how successful our Cards have been.
All stats are shown through Aug. 30, 2020, based off the WNBA site.
Angel McCoughtry, Las Vegas Aces
The eldest of the four Cards in the pros has played in all 15 games for the Aces, averaging 20.5 minutes per game. McCoughtry has totaled 220 points on the season. Her 53.5% from the field is on the low side for her. McCoughtry has also posted 78 rebounds and 38 assists to go with 18 steals, five blocks, and 25 turnovers.14.6 points per game for Angel.
Myisha Hines-Allen, Washington Mystics
Myisha has stepped up big time in her third year. The Mystics have looked to their new leader, who has appeared in all 15 gsames. MHA has shattered her previous career-high and has 236 points on the year while averaging 29.4 minutes per game. Myisha has added 128 rebounds, 36 assists, and 22 steals while committing 36 turnovers. 15.7 points per game for Myisha.
Jazmine Jones, New York Liberty
One of two UofL rookies, Jazmine Jones has stepped into a bit of an unfamiliar role with the Liberty. Jaz has appeared in 14 of the 15 games. She has averaged 20.6 minutes per game and totaled 145 points on the year. The rookie has shot a surprising 38.5% from three-point range. Jaz has also added 47 rebounds, 30 assists, 17 steals, and six blocks to go along with 38 turnovers. 10.3 points per game for Jazmine.
Kylee Shook, New York Liberty
Shook is the other of the two Louisville rookies in the WNBA, and has averaged 15.2 minutes per game. Shook has scored 61 points, but very little of it has come from deep range, going just 2-for-12 so far from beyond the arc. She has totaled 45 rebounds to go along with eight assists, six blocks, five steals, and 14 turnovers. Kylee averages about 4.0 points a game.
The regular season concludes on Sept. 12, with the playoffs beginning shortly after. If the standings stay true we will see just Angel and the Aces in the playoffs with the Liberty and Mystics falling short of playoff contention.
Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
