On Sunday, the WNBA announced that Washington Mystics forward Myisha Hines-Allen was named to the All-WNBA Second Team.

Hines-Allen, the runner up to the Most Improved Player Award, averaged 17.0 points and 8.9 rebounds per game in the 2020 season. She joins Diana Taurasi (Phoenix Mercury), DeWanna Bonner (Connecticut Sun), Napheesa Collier (Minnesota Lynx) and Skylar Diggins Smith (Phoenix Mercury) on the team.

The first team members were A’ja Wilson (Las Vegas Aces), Breanna Stewart (Seattle Storm), Candace Parker (Los Angeles Sparks), Courtney Vandersloot (Chicago Sky) and Arike Ogunbowale (Dallas Wings).

The WNBA is a highly competitive league, and to be one of the 10 players on these teams is no small feat, especially given that Hines-Allen was a seldom-used reserve last year. Congratulations, Myisha!
