The gorgeous WNBA player Dijonai Carrington has had a somewhat decent first season for Connecticut. Being a rookie player, the first season usually helps players find their feet and things can only look brighter in the future if you create a decent base.
1st Season Stats
She played a total of 24 games and started just the one game. Her average game time rounds of too around 9.2 minutes per game, which is sort of expected from a rookie, unless they are remarkably talented.
She has average 2 rebounds per game and she did look solid, we can only expect this particular stat to get better. Moreover, she averages 0.5 assists per game, so this needs improvement for sure. She has 0.9 turnover rate and only 0.1 blocks per game. Her points per game average rounds of to around 3 points a game.
If you look at her overall game and impact, not just the stats you’d agree with the fact that she has been one of the very best rookie players. Moreover, she has already amassed a massive following on social media and we can expect things to get better for her with time.
College stats are surprising
Dijonai Carrington while playing at Stanford, wasn’t all that impressive with the exception of the 2018-19 season. However, her move to Baylor during her last college year was a revelation. She had the career best stats averaging 14.15 points per game and had over 2 steals per game. Her free throw accuracy was over 72% and her rebounds averaged to near 5 a game.
What must she aim for the coming season?
As a rookie, the first season is all about settling in and understanding your teammates. We can already expect her to do better next season, though she should consider working on her defense a bit, which will help her get more game time and she can utilize the opportunity to show her skills in attack, like she did in her college years. Her goal for next season must obviously be more game time and possibly starting a few as well.
