Chat With Indiana's Tan White
Join Tan for a live chat on Tuesday at 1:15 p.m. (2:15 ET).|
Fever rookie White has already proven that her choice as Indiana's top draft pick was well worth the No. 2 selection in last April's draft. On the WNBA All-Star ballot in just her first season (click here to vote), White currently leads all rookie scorers while twice eclipsing 20 points. She scored 26 in her first professional start, against defending champ Seattle, and added 20 points off the bench in an overtime win against Detroit. She is the league's only rookie to reach 20 points in a single game.
Ranked as the league's top rookie and certainly a top candidate to become the second Fever player to garner WNBA Rookie of the Year honors (Catchings in 2002), White has taken over the lead in WNBA.com's weekly rookie rankings.
The NCAA Division I scoring leader last season, the Mississippi State product has shown flashes of her talent whether off the bench or in the starting lineup. She ranks tops among rookies in scoring (10.9) and is in the top five in several other categories. Her athleticism is unquestioned, and once she develops a bit more, she will be an explosive talent in the WNBA for years to come.
