Stephanie White (born June 20, 1977) is a former professional basketball player and currently the head coach of the Indiana Fever of the WNBA. As an intercollegiate athlete, she was named the winner of the Wade Trophy in 1999, which recognizes the top female basketball player in the nation.[1]

White was the 1995 Indiana Miss Basketball and was also named 1995 Gatorade National Player of the Year and the USA Today National Player of the Year. White attended Seeger High School in West Lebanon, Indiana, where she was named a High School All-American by the WBCA. She participated in the WBCA High School All-America Game in 1995, scoring seventeen points, and earning MVP honors.[2][3] She led Purdue University to the 1999 NCAA Women's National Championship in basketball. She played five years in the WNBA, one with the Charlotte Sting and four with the Indiana Fever. She retired in 2004.

Stephanie White joined the Chicago Sky as an assistant coach in 2007, spending four seasons there until she joined her college coach, Lin Dunn, as the first former WNBA player to serve as an assistant coach on the Fever staff. She was named head coach on September 23, 2014, making her the youngest active coach in the league.[4]

USA Basketball

White competed with USA Basketball as a member of the 1997 Jones Cup Team that won the silver medal in Taipei. Several of the games were close, with the USA team winning four games by six points or fewer, including an overtime game in the semifinal match against Japan. The gold medal game against South Korea was also close, but the USA fell 76–71 to claim the silver medal for the event. White was the second leading scorer for the team, averaging 10.3 points per game.[5]

Awards and honors


White began her five-year WNBA career with the Charlotte Sting in 1999 under her married name, Stephanie White-McCarty. She was acquired a year later in an expansion draft by the Indiana Fever to lead the team’s inaugural season roster. After four years with the Fever, she ranked third in games played (112) and three point field goals (92), and fourth in scoring (684). She averaged 5.9 points and 2.0 assists per game.

She retired from the WNBA in 2004, and went on to become the assistant coach at Ball State (2003–04), Kansas State (2004–05), and the University of Toledo (2005–06 and 2006–07), before going to the Chicago Sky. White was involved in all aspects of the basketball program, including recruiting, on-floor coaching, scouting, individual workouts and academic support.

Since 2007, White has also served as a college basketball analyst for ESPN and the Big Ten Network, including studio work and co-hosting the network's coverage of the Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament.

Personal life

White and her wife reside in Indianapolis with their three young children.[7]
