INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Fever guard Julie Allemand was named to the Associated Press All-Rookie Team today.
Allemand is the fourth Fever rookie to make the AP All-Rookie Team, joining Teaira McCowan (2019), Kelsey Mitchell (2018) and Tiffany Mitchell (2016).
In her rookie season with the Fever, Allemand became the first rookie in WNBA history to average at least 8.0 points, 5.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game. The 5-foot-8 guard was the ninth rookie in league history to record at least eight assists in six games during her inaugural WNBA season.
In the third game of her WNBA career against the Dallas Wings on July 31, Allemand’s 11 assists tied a franchise record for the most assists in a single game. She joined Coquese Washington and Vice President of Basketball Operations and General Manager, Tamika Catchings, as the only players in Fever history with multiple games recording at least 10 assists.
Allemand was the only rookie to start every game this season, as she ended the 2020 season averaging the second most assists in the WNBA at 5.8 assists per contest.
She is joined on the AP All-Rookie Team with Crystal Dangerfield (Minnesota Lynx), Satou Sabally (Dallas Wings), Chennedy Carter (Atlanta Dream) and Jazmine Jones (New York Liberty).
