The Washington Mystics announced that free agent forward Tianna Hawkins has signed with the team.
“We are glad to welcome Tianna back to the Mystics,” said head coach Mike Thibault. “She had some unfortunate luck with her injuries last year when she was playing well. She was a terrific teammate and we are happy to give her the opportunity to earn a spot on our roster."
Washington acquired Hawkins prior to the 2014 season. She was drafted in the first round (6
overall) by the Storm in the 2013 WNBA draft and has career averages of 4.0 points per game and 2.4 rebounds per game. A standout at the University of Maryland, Hawkins led the Terrapins to the 2013 Sweet Sixteen and was named to numerous All-ACC Teams. A D.C. native, Hawkins led the NCAA in field goal percentage (.623) during the 2012 season. During her senior year, she averaged 18.0 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per game.
