Mitchell said Howard has to “pay attention to even the smallest details and stay committed to even more hard work” going into next season. Mitchell says she could raise her shooting percentage, cut down turnovers or add a few more rebounds per game.
“The good thing is Rhyne is never satisfied. That’s why she is great and among the top players in the nation coming back next year and rightfully a leading candidate for player of the year,” Mitchell said.
“I love that she wants to keep getting better. She wants to help us win SEC and national championships because she is very team driven. She knows when you have team success, individual success has a way of working itself out.”
