What an honor it is to be inducted into the Hall of Fame of any sort. One prestigious list to make is the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame, which so happened to be announced Saturday morning.

Current ESPN commentator and former WNBA legend, Rebecca Lobo was named to the Naismith Hall of Fame, along with current Notre Dame head coach Muffet McGraw — the only female members named this year.

The other members announced were Tracy McGrady (former NBA star), Bill Self (current head coach at Kansas), Robert Hughes (High school coach in Texas), Jerry Krause (Chicago Bulls executive, who recently passed), George McGinnis (former NBA, ABA star), Tom Jernstedt (former NCAA VP), Nikos Galis (European star) and two Harlem Globetrotters, Zack Clayton and Mannie Jackson.
