Rhyne Howard Selected First Overall in WNBA Draft

After a historic career at Kentucky, Rhyne Howard has been selected as the top overall pick in the 2022 WNBA draft. This pick belonged to the Atlanta Dream.

Howard’s selection is a historic one as she becomes the first player in Kentucky women’s basketball history to be taken with the first pick. History is something that Howard has been quite used to making as she edged her name into many of the Kentucky record books.

Given her senior season and overall career at Kentucky, it was expected that Atlanta would be where she would land. With the pick now in for the Dream, Howard begins her journey to be one of the greats in WNBA history as she was in college.
