Plum Named WNBA Comeback Player Of The Year and Sixth Woman Of The Year

Sep 24, 2021

The Associated Press announced its postseason awards for the WNBA and former Husky star Kelsey Plum was named the league's Comeback Player of the Year and Sixth Woman of the Year. 

Plum, who missed all of 2020 while recovering from an Achilles' injury, came off the bench for the Las Vegas Aces in 2021 and averaged a career-best 14.8 points and 3.6 assists per game. 

"Comeback means a lot more to me than the sixth man," Plum said to the AP. "I don't know what people expected from me coming back. I knew it would be like this. It's cool that other people can see that."

Plum is the second Aces' player to win the Sixth Woman of the Year Award in as many years, following teammate Dearica Hamby.
