Wings' Allisha Gray wins WNBA Rookie of the Year award

It's been a whirlwind year for Allisha Gray.

The Wings rookie helped South Carolina win the national championship in April, was drafted fourth by Dallas 11 days later and capped it off by being named WNBA Rookie of the Year on Tuesday.

"It's been fun. Being able to win a national championship was a goal of mine," Gray said. "Then to carry that momentum into the WNBA season."

Gray received 30 votes from a national media panel while Atlanta Dream guard Brittney Sykes got 10.

"It's a big honor," Gray said of winning rookie of the year. "I'm glad my hard work didn't go unnoticed, and I'm blessed to receive this award."
