New York, NY (Sports Network) - Chicago Sky guard/forward Elena Delle Donne
received her second straight WNBA Rookie of the Month honor after being
selected for the award for games played in July.
Delle Donne paced all league rookies in scoring (16.4 ppg), free throw
percentage (.909), blocks (1.6 bpg) and minutes played (30.8) over seven July
games, five of which resulted in Chicago wins. The Delaware native began the
month by posting her first career double-double with a 12-point, 12-rebound
effort in a loss to Seattle on July 2.
The 23-year-old has led the Sky to an Eastern Conference-best 12-5 record and
was the leading vote-getter for this year's All-Star Game, though Delle Donne
was forced to miss the contest due to a concussion.
