The Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame has announced that the 2020 Induction Ceremony, scheduled for June 13, 2020, has been postponed and will be rescheduled for June 12, 2021.

The Hall of Fame Class of 2020, Debbie Brock (Veteran Player), Carol Callan (Contributor), Swin Cash (Player), Tamika Catchings (Player), Sue Donohoe (Contributor), Lauren Jackson (International Player) and Carol Stiff (Contributor) will become the Class of 2021.

Both will be honored next year on June 12, 2021 in Knoxville, TN.

The Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Board of Directors and Management Team felt that this is the most prudent step to take due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and health of our newest inductees and trailblazers, past inductees, board members, WBHOF staff, and all induction weekend attendees are of the upmost importance.
