Stats: In her second season as a member of the Indiana Fever, Tiffany Mitchell was again effective coming off the bench. Mitchell played in 27 games this year, starting nine. She played an average of 29.9 minutes per night, averaging 10.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals. Mitchell shot 34.9 percent from the floor, 24.6 percent from beyond the arc and 92.2 percent from the free-throw line. Her minutes, points, rebounds and steals per game, as well as her free-throw percentage, were all improvements from her rookie season.
