🔥 We’ve got the fever

It’s going to be a big night for the Indiana Fever, with the new team making their home season debut vs. the New York Liberty at 7 p.m.

In case you’ve been living under a very big rock, No. 1 draft pick and new Fever team member Caitlin Clark is becoming a WNBA star. She scored 20 points in front of a sold-out crowd against the Sun in Connecticut on Tuesday night.

While the team ultimately lost the game, hopefully some hometown Hoosier spirit (and the already-iconic Cheez-It key) will lift the Fever to victory tonight. Here’s how to watch:
  • Tickets to attend the game in-person at Gainbridge Fieldhouse are still available for as low as $7.
  • Here’s a walkthrough on how you can watch the game for free on WTHR (plus 10 more free Fever games during the WNBA season).
  • To catch live out-of-market games and every game on-demand, get the WNBA League Pass.
In what year was the Fever formed?

A. 1996
B. 1999
C. 2001
D. 2007

From the editor
My family loves jigsaw puzzles — my mom almost always has one going whenever I visit home. I’m sure if she had a bigger house, she’s be gunning for John’s record. In the meantime, I get my jigsaw fix every once in a while by picking one up at Moonshot Games.
