FEVER DRAFT FACTS:

 

▶️ Indiana selected Tan White with the No. 2 overall pick in 2005.

▶️ Indiana is only WNBA franchise without a top-four pick in more than a decade.

▶️ Tamika Catchings is the only No. 3 pick in WNBA history to garner MVP honors in the regular season or Finals, and she did both.

▶️ Catchings is the only No. 3 selection in league history to win the Defensive Player of the Year award. She won it five times.

▶️ A 10th overall draft pick has earned All-WNBA honors four times, all by Indianapolis product and former Fever star Katie Douglas.

WNBA DRAFT FACTS:

 

▶️ Since 2009, the only WNBA champion without a No. 1 draft pick on its roster was the 2012 Indiana Fever. Every other championship roster since 2010 has had at least two No. 1 draft picks.

▶️ Since 2010, no player drafted outside of the top 10 has ever earned All-WNBA honors.

▶️ Top-three picks have earned 125 out of 166 All-WNBA selections, outside of early seasons dominated by allocations.

▶️ Through 2016, nearly* every No. 1 selection has won a WNBA title, earned Rookie of the Year, or earned at least one All-WNBA selection.

 
* Lindsey Harding (2007), LaToya Thomas (2003) and Margo Dydek (2000). Dydek was, however, a two-time All-Star and Harding was named to the 2007 All-Rookie Team.
