Tina Charles is honored by WNBA again

Connecticut Sun center Tina Charles has been named the WNBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the third time this season and fourth time in her career as she topped the WNBA with an average of 13.3 rebounds per game in games against Los Angeles, Seattle and Phoenix. Charles also averaged 20.3 points, the third-highest total among Eastern Conference players as the Sun completed a three-game road trip with a 2-1 record with the only loss coming when Seattle’s Sue Bird had a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Charles leads the WNBA with an average of 10.9 rebounds per game and 14 double-doubles while ranking fifth with an 18.1 scoring average and 1.45 blocked shots per game.

Seimone Augustus of the Minnesota Lynx was named the Western Conference Player of the Week.
