White to be Inducted at Purdue

February 10, 2006
Former Indiana Fever star Stephanie White has been named among 10 for Purdue greats to be inducted into the school's Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame on April 21 at Purdue's Memorial Union.

Heading the list with White were former men's basketball great Glenn Robinson, college basketball's national Player of the Year in 1994, and Mike Alstott, the school's all-time leading rusher and a longtime member of the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Robinson and Alstott have been selected in earlier years but have been unable to attend induction ceremonies because of scheduling conflicts.

Stephanie White, who led the women's basketball team to the 1999 national title, is a new inductee. She starred in the WNBA since 1999, including four seasons and 112 games with the Fever. Currently, she is an assistant coach at the University of Toledo, which plays at Ball State next Wednesday (Feb. 15).

The other inductees: Keena Turner and Leo Sugar, football; Herm Gilliam, men's basketball; Kim (Fritsch) Morstadt, Dick Papenguth (coach) and Penny Taylor, swimming; and former University president Stephen C. Beering.
