WASHINGTON (AP) -- Coaches Gary Blair of Texas A&M and Jim Foster of Ohio State headline the 2013 women's basketball Hall of Fame class.

Joining them are Jen Rizzotti, Peggie Gillom-Granderson, Annette Smith-Knight and Sue Wicks. The class was announced Monday night during the U.S. women's basketball Olympic team's exhibition game against Brazil.

Blair has won over 620 games in his 27-year coaching career and is one of three coaches to lead two different teams to the NCAA women's Final Four, including his current team Texas A&M, which won the national championship in 2011.

Foster has won 765 games in his career and is just the second college coach to win at least 200 games at three different schools.

Rizzotti helped UConn to its first national championship in 1995 a perfect 35-0 record.
