(AP File Photo)Elena Delle Donne continued her torrid run through her first WNBA season by claiming her 3rd straight WNBA Rookie of the Month honor, the league announced Tuesday.
The Delaware alum led all rookies with 18.4 points per game, including a career-high 32 point performance in an overtime victory over Western Conference-leading Minnesota.
The Sky went 6-2 in the month and lead the Eastern Conference by 5 1/2 games over Atlanta, and only trail Minnesota by a game in the race for best record in the league.
Delle Donne makes her last regular season approach to the Delaware area when the Sky play at Washington Sunday at 3pm.
