Helen in TN and at the WBHOF Induction ceremony, plus a little photography, pt. 4.
As promised, some photos from Helen's adventures. (Or, as our favorite Final Four announcer says, "Faux-toes."
Too much to digest from tonight to put into words -- especially after negotiating uploading and inserting -- but I will offer some quotes from tonight that resonated:
Inductee Gloria Ray (On what was the biggest challenge she faced in getting the WBHOF built): "[Giving people the] confidence that we deserved and the game needed and warranted a place to be honored."
Inductee Teresa Weatherspoon (On accepting the job to coach at Louisiana Tech): It was impossible to say "no" to a University that didn't say "no" to me.
Jasmina Perazic, quoting her Maryland coach, inductee Chris Weller: "Aren't you either honest or not honest?"
Rebecca Lobo: "I was fortunate to be a child of Title IX. I rode that wave."
Leta Andrews, of John Wooden, who had planned to attend her induction: "He was a peach of a man."
Resident of Cairo, Georgia, Teresa Edwards' home town: "She kept coming back home."
