Women’s basketball mourns death of Anne Donovan
To many in the world of women’s basketball, Anne Donovan was a giant. And not just because she stood 6-foot-8.
She won a national championship at Old Dominion, two Olympic gold medals as a player and another as a coach in her storied career.
The 56-year-old Hall of Famer died Wednesday of heart failure, her family said in a statement.
“One of the greater basketball players in her time slot,” Las Vegas Aces coach Bill Laimbeer said.
