Not only is a new season beginning for the Indiana Fever, but so is a new era. Tamika Catchings, the long-time face of the franchise, is no longer suiting up for Indiana, meaning someone else will have to provide leadership for the group on and off-the-court. Replacing an icon and leader is never easy, but luckily the Fever have veteran point guard Briann January, who is more than ready for the role.
January is entering her ninth WNBA season, all of which have been in Indiana, making her the team’s longest-tenured player. Combine that experience with the fact that as a point guard she’s already accustomed to being a leader on the court, and you have the perfect recipe for the locker room’s new voice.
