Georgia Bulldogs: Katrina McClain

Former Georgia All-American and two-time Olympic gold medalist Katrina McClain was announced Monday as one of this year’s 12 inductees into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

“It was very sweet,” McClain told TV interviewer Jim Nantz from the podium at the announcement ceremony in New Orleans. “It’s always good to feel like you’re part of a family and knowing from the past, my best friend Teresa Edwards was inducted last year of course she always talks about how great it feels and how the Hall treats you so nice, so it’s a wonderful feeling and I’m so honored.”

McClain will be inducted alongside players Reggie Miller, Ralph Sampson, Jamaal Wilkes, coach Don Nelson, official Hank Nichols and team, the All-American Red Heads. They will join five previously announced directly elected inductees: player Mel Daniels, Don Barksdale, Chet Walker, coach Lidia Alexeeva and contributor Phil Knight.
