Six tabbed for 2011 women's HOF class
Former WNBA president Val Ackerman and current Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw headline the six-person 2011 Women's Basketball Hall of Fame class.
Ackerman was the first president of the WNBA from 1996-2005. She then went on to be the first president of USA basketball from 2005-08.
Ackerman and McGraw will be joined by Olympic gold medalists Ruthie Bolton and Vicky Bullett, as well as pre-NCAA era players Pearl Moore, who starred at Francis Marion, and Lometa Odom, who played for Wayland Baptist.
The six will be enshrined next June.
