The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame has moved this year's induction ceremony to late August because of COVID-19. It was originally scheduled for mid-June.
The Knoxville, Tennessee-based hall of fame has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and made the switch to Aug. 21 for the safety of guests. Hall of Fame President Dana Hart says the feeling is that August "will be a safer time to be together in person."
The eight-member class of 2021 includes players Tamika Catchings and Sue Bird and former NBA Commissioner David Stern, who died just over a year ago. The 1980 U.S. Women's Olympic basketball team also will be honored as trailblazers of the game.
