Victoria Vivians has consistently been one of the top players in women’s basketball. Starring for the Mississippi State Bulldogs, the 6-foot-1 guard helped the Bulldogs to four NCAA Tournament appearances, three Sweet Sixteens, and two national championship game berths.
Vivians is the first four-time Gillom Trophy winner (Mississippi’s top women’s college basketball player) in the program’s history.
Now, Vivians is looking to take her talents to the WNBA where she is a projected top ten pick.
She is represented by Lil Wayne’s Young Money APAA Sports & Entertainment.
ESPN’s Rebecca Lobo had the following to say about Vivians’ skill set:
A lot of people really like Victoria because of her size… Big guards are at a premium in the WNBA… and her ability to score. Not only did her efficiency increase this year, but the dramatic increase in her three-point shot, shooting from 20-something to the 40s. She’s shown that she’s a player who can continue to improve, and adjust her role even if that means fewer field goal attempts. I think people really liked her a year ago, and becoming more efficient has only helped her. She’s a very appealing big guard in this draft.
Throughout her career at Mississippi State, Vivians, who majored in Human Sciences, averaged 17.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while shooting better than 40 percent from the floor.
Vivians was a First-Team All-American in 2018, Third-Team All-American in 2017, and a three-time First-Team All-SEC honoree.
The 2018 WNBA Draft takes place Thursday, April 12 at the Nike New York Headquarters in Midtown Manhattan. The player selection will air on ESPN2 beginning at 7:00 p.m. ET, with the Las Vegas Aces holding the No. 1 overall pick.
