As of July 23, 2016

The LSU women’s basketball program has three of its former standouts in Seimone Augustus (Minnesota Lynx), Sylvia Fowles (Minnesota Lynx) and Theresa Plaisance (Dallas Wings) on WNBA rosters for the 2016 season.

The WNBA is now on a break through August 24 for the Olympics. Fowles and Augustus, who both hold gold medals from the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games, will be playing in Rio. The USA National Team will begin exhibition play on July 25 against the USA Select Team at the Galen Center on Southern Cal’s campus. To follow USA Basketball, visit usab.com.

Below is a listing of student-athletes who finished their careers with the LSU Women's Basketball team and are on 2016 WNBA rosters.

Throughout the season, LSUsports.net will update this page so that you can keep up with the progress of our former Lady Tigers.

No. Name Pos. Years Pro Team

34 Sylvia Fowles C 8 Minnesota Lynx
55 Theresa Plaisance F 2 Dallas Wings

Augustus has spent all 11 of her seasons with the Lynx and has lived up to her billing since being selected as the No. 1 overall pick in 2006. She has won three titles with Minnesota in 2011, 2013 and in 2015 with former LSU teammate Sylvia Fowles. She is a six-time All-WNBA selection as well as a six-time WNBA All Star. Augustus is one of 16 players in league history to amass 5,000 career points and is the WNBA’s seventh-leading career scorer averaging with 17.7 points per game over 285 career games. In June 2016, Augustus earned a spot on the league's list of the 20 greatest and most influential players in its history.

Fowles, in her ninth season in the league, was named the 2015 WNBA Finals MVP. She has garnered a pair of All-WNBA First-Team and All-WNBA Second-Team selections. Fowles also has captured two WNBA Defensive Player of the Year awards and has been named a WNBA All-Defensive honoree during six of her eight-plus seasons. She ranks fourth with 9.6 career rebounds per game and fifth with 1.9 blocks per game in WNBA history over a career that spans 229 games.

Plaisance, who is LSU’s most recent draft pick (27th pick in 2014), has played 19 games this season with the Dallas Wings. The Wings are the former Tulsa Shock as the squad relocated to Dallas following the 2015 season. Plaisance logged game action in 45 contests in her first two seasons in the league, and averages 2.0 points and 1.7 rebounds a game. In just her second game in 2016, Plaisance scored a career-high 14 points.
