In October 2012, The Indiana Fever captured their first WNBA championship with its Game 4 victory over the Minnesota Lynx during what was its eighth consecutive trip to the WNBA Playoffs. It is the city’s first professional basketball championship since the 1973 Indiana Pacers won the ABA crown.

A WNBA playoff participant in eight straight seasons and nine times since 2002, the Indiana Fever has reached at least the Eastern Conference Finals in five of the past eight years. Participating in the WNBA Finals for the second time in four years, the Indiana Fever became the champion of women’s basketball for the 2012 WNBA championship.
