Augustus has spent all 10 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 17 players in league history to amass 4,800 career points and is the WNBA’s seventh-leading career scorer averaging with 18.2 points per game over 267 career games.

Fowles, entering 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 seasons. She ranks second with 9.7 career rebounds per game and tied for fourth with 2.0 blocks per game in WNBA history over a career that spans 207 games.

Plaisance, who is LSU’s most recent draft pick (27th pick in 2014), opens the 2016 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 44 contests in her first two seasons in the league, and averages 1.9 points and 1.5 rebounds a game. In just her second game in 2016, Plaisance scored a career-high 14 points.
