Editorial: Fever championship win due to entire team effort

The Indiana Fever made it their mission to get Tamika Catchings a WNBA championship.

Catchings, star of the Indiana Fever basketball team, had won three Olympic gold medals to go along with  an NCAA championship at Tennessee in 1998.

As a pro, she had been a league MVP and its best defensive player. But she never had won a team title in the WNBA.

She scored 25 points to help the Indiana Fever win their first WNBA title with an 87-78 victory against the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday. It was Indianapolis’ first professional basketball title since the ABA Indiana Pacers won their last one in 1973.
