Congrats to the Indiana Fever on their first-ever WNBA championship! The Fever knocked out the Minnesota Lynx last night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to close out the championship series with a huge 87-78 victory.

Leading the way was Fever fan favorite Tamika Catchings, tallying 25 points in the win. Despite winning three Olympic gold medals and an NCAA championship at Tennesee, Catchings had never won an WNBA title. Catchings’ former UT coach, Pat Summit, was in attendance with 15,213 other WNBA fans to witness the exciting final game.

Indiana high school connections to the Fever’s championship run include player Katie Douglas (right, Perry Meridian/Purdue) and assistant coach Stephanie White (Seeger/Purdue). Douglas played very little in the championship game due to an ankle injury, but she was instrumental to the Fever’s championship run, averaging 22 points and shooting 54% from the field during the WNBA tournament.
