I was on-hand at the 2017 Women’s Basketball hall of Fame induction ceremony for the Female Coaching Network. Louise O’Neal was the first inductee I spoke with during the media session. O’Neal chatted about her time with Southern Connecticut and Yale University – including a connection to part-owner of the Seattle Storm, Lisa Brummel.
“One of the young women went on to become Vice President of Microsoft and she put funds together to buy the WNBA franchise because they were going to end it. So you can see how basketball made an impact on her and she got a great education and a good job which meant she could afford to do that. So I think some of the stuff I taught them did get through.” – Louise O’Neal
Louise O’Neal chatted with me about what the special honor meant her her coming off some health issues, as well as some of her coaching role models and mentors. You can find the full interview at the Female Coaching Network.
