Indiana Fever select Stanford star Lexie Hull with sixth overall pick in 2022 WNBA Draft
Lexie Hull knows nothing but winning basketball after a decorated career with the Stanford Cardinal.
The Indiana Fever are hoping she can bring a little of that town. On Monday night, Hull was selected by Indiana with the sixth overall pick in the 2022 WNBA Draft, marking the 13th time in program history a Stanford player has gone in the first round.

One of only 15 players in program history to be named to the All-Pac-12 team three different times, Hull provided consistent excellence for coach Tara VanDerveer and the Cardinal.
Starting every game in which she was available since her sophomore year, Hull helped lead the Cardinal to one national championship, two Final Four appearances, two Pac-12 regular-season championships, and three Pac-12 Tournament titles.
Though her career came to an end one game sooner than she’d hoped—a 63-58 loss to UConn in the Final Four on April 1—Hull put together a great one, open to close. She finishes with 1,402 points—24th in program history—and 191 career 3-pointers. Her triples rank 11th all-time at Stanford.
She poured in a career-high 36 points against Kansas in what was her final game at Maples Pavilion on March 20 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. She finished top three on the team in scoring and rebounding each of the last three seasons, leading the squad in rebounds as a sophomore. She also earned Pac-12 All-Defensive Team honors twice.
In Hull’s four years with Stanford, the Cardinal went 121-17. She’ll join a Fever team that went just 6-26 last season. She should be able to provide some immediate assistance. Indiana shot a league-worst 28% from 3-point range during the 2021 season. Hull should have the green light from distance.
