KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Indiana Fever coach Lin Dunn — a former Seattle Storm coach — is back in her home state to receive her biggest honor yet as she approaches the conclusion of an illustrious career.

Dunn, who plans to retire from coaching at the end of the season, is one of six people being inducted Saturday into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. The return home has brought back plenty of memories for the 67-year-old Dunn, a Nashville native who has plenty of ties to Tennessee.

“I have a lot of family and friends that can attend this because they’re from in state, and I think that makes it even more memorable for me,” Dunn said. “I spent time coaching at Austin Peay in the state of Tennessee.”

This year’s induction class also includes former Iowa star Michelle Edwards, broadcaster Mimi Griffin, former Sacramento Monarchs standout Yolanda Griffith (who played for the Storm in 2008), former Maryland player Jasmina Perazic and ex-Southern Illinois women’s athletic director Charlotte West.

Friday’s games

Angel McCoughtry scored 23 points as Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta beat visiting Minnesota, the Western Conference leader and defending league champion, 85-82.

• In other games, Emma Meesseman had 16 points and 11 rebounds as host Washington beat Chicago 79-68; visiting Connecticut defeated New York 83-75; and host Tulsa edged Los Angeles 69-67 for its third straight victory.
