Stewart is WNBA's Rookie of the Month - again

Former UConn star Breanna Stewart is a perfect 2 for 2 in securing WNBA Rookie of the Month honors.

In June, Stewart led all rookies in scoring (19.5 points per game), rebounding (9.5 rpg) and blocked shots (2.0 bpg) and ranked second in assists (3.6 apg) in 11 games.  Among all WNBA players, she was first in rebounding, second in blocks, third in minutes played (34.4 mpg) and fifth in scoring.
Stewart had four straight 20-point games including a 38-point explosion in a win over Atlanta on June 28 which is the third-highest total for a rookie in WNBA history.

For the season, Stewart leads the league in rebounding (9.8 rpg) and is seventh in scoring (18.7 ppg).  Stewart also has seven double-doubles.
