The Indiana Fever announced today guard Victoria Vivians has signed the qualifying offer extended by VP of Basketball Operations and General Manager, Tamika Catchings. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.
“Victoria has proven to be a versatile scorer in our league since her rookie season. It was extremely encouraging to see her play all of last season and it is a positive sign for her heading into this upcoming season,” Fever Head Coach Marianne Stanley said.
Vivians has played her entire career in Indiana since being drafted by the Fever with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 WNBA Draft.
After missing the entire 2019 season and having her 2020 season cut short due to injury, Vivians returned to play a key role with the Fever in 2021. In 31 games last season, Vivians averaged 6.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 21.3 minutes per contest. She added eight starts to increase her career total to 34 games started during her WNBA tenure.
During the 2021 season, Vivians also eclipsed the 500-point mark in her career and will also enter the 2022 season with 99 made 3-point field goals, which is good for 13th all-time in Fever franchise history.
As rookies in 2018, Vivians and current Fever guard Kelsey Mitchell recorded the most 3-pointers ever made (135) by a WNBA rookie tandem.
