NEW YORK (AP) – A person close to the situation says Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale will be inducted into the women’s basketball Hall of Fame next year.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made.

Coale has guided Oklahoma to three Final Fours. She headlines a six-person class that will be inducted next June in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Coale will be joined by former Missouri State guard Jackie Stiles, Olympic gold medalist Natalie Williams, longtime official June Courteau, Texas girls high school coach Joe Lombard and AAU girls basketball official Bill Tipps.

The 1996 U.S. women’s basketball Olympic team will receive the Hall’s trailblazer award.
