2014 Women's Basketball Hall of Fame inductees announced


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame is set to have some new members.

The WBHOF announced its 16th group of inductees Saturday during the WNBA All-Star Game.

The six members of the Class of 2014 are coach Lin Dunn, players Michelle Edwards, Yolanda Griffith, and Jasmina Perazic, along with contributors Charlotte West and Mimi Griffin.

Dunn has been a professional head coach for 11 seasons, and was the 1998 American Basketball League Coach of the Year.

Edwards played five seasons in the WNBA after a standout collegiate career at the University of Iowa.

Griffith was named the WNBA's most valuable player in 1999. She also is a two-time Olympic gold medalist.

Perazic played only one season in the WNBA for the New York Liberty, and was a two-time member of the Yugoslavian Olympic Team in the early 1980's.

Griffin is considered by many to be the first broadcast expert for women's basketball and is credited with gaining the WNBA exposure in it's early years.

West was the Director of Athletics for women at Southern Illinois University.

The new members will be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame on June 14, 2014.
