School: Mississippi State

Notable Stats: 19.7 points per game and 6.0 rebounds per game her senior year, not to mention back-to-back national championship appearances.

Position: Forward

Height: 6’1”

Another first-rounder that understands and knows what a championship mentality is. Vivians surely has the frame and the intangibles to thrive in the big leagues after playing in one of the toughest conferences in the country for four years. She’s a multi-dimensional scorer that will only continue to get stronger, faster and better.

Vivians was a consistent force at Mississippi State and ended with a career shooting average of 40% — but she’s also never met a ‘mismatch’ in her life and can rebound. She will undoubtedly help the Fever bounce back from a single-digit win season in 2017 with her scoring finesse and ability to, quite honestly, do it all.
