The Women’s Basketball team at Mississippi State doesn’t have a ton of history, but that might be changing with Vic Schaefer at the helm. But they have two great players who suited up for them. The second best of the two is Tan White. White scored 2,421 points in her prestigious career, which is good for 2nd in school history. She holds the school record for three point field goals made, steals, blocked shots, and field goals attempted. White was named to numerous All-American teams including the WBCA All-American Team in 2005, becoming only the second Lady Bulldog to be named to the prestigious All-American Team. At the conclusion of her career, White was drafted by the Indiana Fever of the WNBA. She was the second overall pick in the 2005 WNBA Draft.
