Lisa Leslie headlines 2015 women's hoops Hall of Fame class, with Budke and Goestenkors

Four-time Olympic gold medalist Lisa Leslie headlines the 2015 women's basketball Hall of Fame induction class announced Saturday.

She is joined by former Houston Comets star Janeth Arcain, University of Georgia standout Janet Harris, former Duke coach Gail Goestenkors, longtime Oregon high school coach Brad Smith and Oklahoma State coach Kurt Budke, who was killed in a plane crash in 2011.

The Immaculata teams that won championships from 1972-74 will receive the Hall's trailblazer award.

Leslie also won two WNBA titles with the Los Angeles Sparks and was the league's MVP three times. She helped the U.S. win gold medals at the 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics.

The group will be inducted next June at the Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tennessee.
