KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Lindsay Whalen, who helped the Minnesota Lynx win four WNBA championships, will be inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame next spring as part of a five-member class.

Joining Whalen will be ESPN analyst Carolyn Peck, who became the first Black head coach to win an NCAA women's basketball championship when she led Purdue to the title in 1999. The other inductees announced Sunday were 1984 Olympic gold medalist Cathy Boswell, former Texas women's athletic director Donna Lopiano and longtime official Lisa Mattingly.

Whalen led Minnesota to the Final Four in 2004. She won two Olympic gold medals and currently is the head coach of Minnesota. She was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in September.
