Roster Review | Crystal Dangerfield

Season number two for 2020 WNBA Rookie of the Year Crystal Dangerfield is officially in the books.

The Connecticut product spent her first summer in Minnesota after the 2020 season was relocated to Bradenton, Fla. due to COVID-19. This meant, of course, that 2021 was the first season in which Dangerfield appeared at Target Center in front of the fans.

Dangerfield appeared in all 31 games this regular season, starting in 10 of them. The 5-5 forward played a total of 623 minutes, had 238 total points, 88 total assists and 61 total rebounds.

Her highest scoring game this season came at the end of May when Dangerfield tallied a total 22 points, just five points shy of her career high.

On May 30th, the second-year guard posted a career-high seven rebounds against the Chicago Sky, and then on June 30th, she tied her career-high in assists (seven) against Phoenix.

In June, it was announced that Crystal Dangerfield was nominated for an ESPY Award as Best Breakthrough Athlete. Although Dangerfield didn’t bring home the hardware, her efforts continue.
