In 1997, Frett Meredith was a first-round draft pick in the ABL, where she played two seasons for the Philadelphia Rage. After the ABL folded, she was drafted by the Los Angeles Sparks, beginning a seven-year WNBA career that included playing for the Sparks (1999-00), the Sacramento Monarchs (2001-03), the Charlotte Sting (2004) and the New York Liberty (2004-05). All but one of the teams reached the playoffs, including trips to the Western Conference Finals in 1999, 2000 and 2003. She also played overseas in Hungary, Israel, South Korea and Spain.
As a player, Frett Meredith enjoyed remarkable success at the prep, collegiate and professional levels. She earned 1993 National Prep Player of the Year honors and then helped lead Georgia to back-to-back Final Four appearances and consecutive SEC titles. Within the professional ranks, her teams advanced to the WNBA playoffs in six of her seven seasons in the league.
While at Georgia, Frett Meredith was the 1994 SEC Freshman of the Year and was named All-SEC by league coaches each of her four years, earning first-team recognition as a sophomore, junior and senior. She was a Naismith All-America pick as a junior and earned All-America recognition from Naismith, the U.S. Basketball Writers Association and the Associated Press (third team) as a senior in 1997. Frett Meredith helped lead Georgia to a combined 98-27 (.784) record from 1993-97. Frett Meredith scored 1,980 points in her Bulldog career, ranking sixth on the career scoring list, and ranked eighth with 842 rebounds.
Frett Meredith was a three-time All-American at Phoebus High School and then headlined one of the most celebrated recruiting classes in women's hoops history that featured five of USA Today's top-20 prospects in the nation. Frett Meredith and her classmates Kedra Holland-Corn and Tracy Henderson went on to become three of the top-15 overall picks in the 1997 ABL Draft, the first draft conducted when professional women's basketball emerged in the U.S. following the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
