Lin Dunn: It’s been an eventful 12 months for the Storm’s inaugural coach.

She won her first WNBA title with the Indiana Fever, in 2012, and Saturday she found out she’ll be inducted into the women’s basketball Hall of Fame next June. On the down side, her 91-year old mother passed away between her two milestones.

“When I found out I immediately thought of my mother and how excited she would be,” said Dunn, 66, who was coaching the East in Saturday’s WNBA All-Star Game. “She’s always been my favorite fan. She’ll be smiling down proudly for me. It’s my 43rd year of coaching, so I can look back and say I’m excited to be a part of the history of the growth of women’s basketball collegiately and professional.”

The 2014 class also includes Yolanda Griffith, Michelle Edwards, Charlotte West, Mimi Griffin and Jasmina Perazic.
