“Its really big, Caitlin’s done a lot for women’s basketball,” Sefton added.

Rachel Rollison says she has been a Fever fan since day one. She says she even went to the team's first ever game at just eight-years-old.

“I have my pennant, it’s from the inaugural season. She’s a little banged up,” Rollison told WRTV.

The former Perry Meridian High School basketball player bonded over going to Fever games with her father.

“I remember him being so excited that we were getting a women’s team and being like, 'You have a team to look up to' because I grew up playing basketball,” Rollison said.
