HOFer Vicky!

Tonight in Knoxville, Maryland's own Vicky Bullett will receive the most well-deserved of honors when she is inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.

As many of our readers undoubtedly know, Vicky was an All-American at Maryland in the 1980s who helped lead the team to three ACC titles and an appearance in the Final Four. Vicky played on two USA Olympic teams (winning gold and bronze medals), and went on to a distinguished career in the then-fledgling WNBA that eventually took her to the Mystics, first as a player and then as an assistant coach. These days, Vicky is back home in Martinsburg, West Virginia, where she teaches special needs students and has recently joined the coaching staff at Hagerstown Community College.

As anyone who has been fortunate to talk with Vicky knows, she is not only an elite and decorated athlete, she is also one of the nicest people on the face of the earth. And the students she teaches and the players she coaches now are as important to her as winning a basketball game ever was. We can't think of anyone more deserving, personally and professionally, of being called a Hall of Famer.

Congratulations, Vicky!!!
