Today, the Indiana Fever announced that it signed forward/center Laura Harper. Harper was the 10th pick in the 2008 Draft and was picked up by the Sacramento Monarchs where she played for two seasons until the team folded. She was then picked up by the San Antonio Silver Stars but injuries set her back from playing in the 2010 and 2011 seasons. In 2012, she was on the Washington Mystics training camp roster but was cut before the season.
Harper is best known in her college days from the University of Maryland, where she was named the 2006 NCAA Tournament's most outstanding player in the Final Four when the Terrapins won the national championship against Duke. Some of Harper's teammates on the championship team include Crystal Langhorne, Kristi Toliver, and Marissa Coleman.
