Guard Ali Patberg was drafted by the Indiana Fever as the tenth pick in the third round (34th overall) of the 2022 WNBA Draft. Patberg played four seasons for Indiana women’s basketball, starting all 123 games she played in for the Hoosiers.
Patberg is the first Indiana women’s basketball player drafted to the WNBA since 2011 and the fourth in program history.
Patberg, a native of Columbus, Indiana, spent her first two college seasons at Notre Dame University before transferring to Indiana and sitting out one season due to the NCAA’s transfer rules at the time.
Across her four seasons playing for the Hoosiers, Patberg scored 1,752 points and recorded 528 assists, good for ninth-most and third-most in program history, respectively. Her skills helped lead Indiana to back-to-back NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen appearances in 2021 and 2022.
