Former Wildcat: Aari McDonald makes AP All-Rookie team, in WNBA

Following a respectable start to her WNBA career, former Wildcat basketball star Aari McDonald earns All-Rookie honors from Associated Press.

It is playoff time in the WNBA, and while Aari McDonald and the Atlanta Dream may not be participating this time, the future is bright for the former Wildcat and her squad.

As you all hopefully recall, Aari was selected as the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 WNBA Draft by the Atlanta Dream, following a spectacular and historic career in Arizona.

Coming into the year, expectations were fairly high too, after all, she pretty much ran through the NCAA Tournament and dominated College Basketball for the previous 3-4 seasons.
