Hall of Fame!
When the 2011 inductees for the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame were announced on ESPN during this afternoon's Stars at the Sun game, the BasketCases were absolutely delighted to hear Vicky Bullett's name among next year's honorees.
Vicky, of course, was a star for the Terps and a star (and later Assistant Coach) for the Mystics, and she's also an Olympic Gold and Bronze Medalist. Not to mention that she's a consummate professional and a genuinely wonderful person. (Those kids out in West Virginia are lucky to have her as their teacher.) Congratulations to Vicky on this well-deserved honor!

Up at Mohegan . . . As expected, the USA Basketball Team, otherwise known as the WNBA All Stars Plus Maya Moore, had no trouble this afternoon with the "other" WNBA All Stars, easily winning by a score of 99-72. The members of the National Team will have little time to practice together before the World Championships begin in late September, so this was good experience for them today, even if the outcome was never in doubt.
