White hopes to be ready for camp

2/12/2004 - Indiana Fever

INDIANAPOLIS -- Guard Stephanie White re-signed with the
Indiana Fever on Thursday while working her way back from
reconstructive surgery on her left knee.

White's knee buckled during a game against New York in August.
She hopes to be ready to play when training camp opens in April.

White began her WNBA career with Charlotte in 1999, then was
taken in the 2000 expansion draft by Miami before being traded to
Indiana.

White averaged 7.2 points in 2000 and 5.6 points in 2001 before
sitting out the 2002 season after having surgery three times to
repair injuries to her left knee and ankle.

She returned last year and scored 6.9 points in 10 starts and
set a Fever record by shooting 93.8 percent from the free throw
line. She was third on the team in scoring.
