Sun center Tina Charles was named the Rookie of the Month for games played in July on Tuesday, marking the third consecutive month she's earned the honor.
Charles averaged a double-double for the month, leading all rookies in points (14.2 per game) and rebounds (10.6), and ranking second overall in boards. Charles also averaged a rookie- and team-best 1.6 blocks per game. A career-high 27-point, 20-rebound and four-block performance against Atlanta was the highlight.
The Sun play at Minnesota tonight (8 p.m., CSN-NE).
