Chat With Former Fever Star Stephanie White
Join Stephanie for a live chat on Thursday at 2 p.m. ET.|
Synonomous with girl's and women's basketball in the Hoosier Heartland, Stephanie White announced her retirement from the WNBA in April. White concluded five seasons in the WNBA, including four with the Indiana Fever - but her legacy in Indiana was cemented far before playing her first game as a pro. Even before returning to the Fever, she was chosen as one of just two females among the 50 greatest basketball players in Indiana history, as named in the Indianapolis Star prior to the opening of Conseco Fieldhouse in 1999.
A prep star at Seeger High School, White finished her high school career with the state's single-season scoring record and was named Indiana's Miss Basketball in 1995. She stayed in-state to play at Purdue University, and as a senior was named the national college player of the year while leading the Boilermakers to their first NCAA championship.
White played with Orlando in her first pro season in 1999, and a year later was acquired by the Fever to lead Indiana's inaugural season roster. White retired following the 2004 season after a series of injuries had taken their toll. She finished her pro career ranked among Indiana?s franchise leaders in a myriad of categories including: games played (112, 3rd); minutes played (2166, 3rd); 3-point field goals (92, 3rd); assists (225, 3rd); steals (115, 3rd), points (684, 4th), free throws (182, 4th).
White will stop by to chat live with fans on Thursday at 2 p.m. ET. Got a question for Stephanie? Send it in now and check back on Thursday to chat live.
