Following an outstanding senior season in leading Ole Miss to its first Sweet 16 appearance since 2007, Rebel guard Angel Baker has signed a contract to fight for a roster spot in training camp with the WNBA’s Chicago Sky.
Baker led Ole Miss in scoring with 14.8 points per game in a record-breaking season by reaching 11 wins in SEC play to tie the most in a single-season. The Indianapolis, Ind., native became the second Rebel to win the Gillom Trophy, as the most outstanding women’s basketball in the state of Mississippi.
Following a career-high season by shooting 44.1 percent from the field, Baker earned her second SEC honor by being named First Team All-SEC. The guard also surpassed the 2,000 career-point mark, to become one of four Rebels in program history to achieve the feat.
If Baker lands a spot on the Sky’s roster, she would become the fifth Rebel to hit the court in the WNBA, joining Yolanda Moore, Jennifer Gillom, Armintie Herrington and Shakira Austin.
