Dawn Staley gets 2012 Hall of Fame nod
SAN ANTONIO -- Former WNBA star Dawn Staley and ABC "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts are among the six inductees to the 2012 class of the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.
The inductees announced Saturday also include two-time Olympic gold medalist Nikki McCray; former Old Dominion star Inge Nissen; five-time Division III national championship coach Nancy Fahey; and former South Carolina star Pam McGee.
Staley received the honor on the same day the WNBA recognized her as one of the league's top 15 players of all-time. Roberts was a college basketball star at Southeastern Louisiana University before starting her career in television.
A date for the formal 2012 induction ceremony has not been set.
