The 1992 Virginia graduate is part of a class of thirteen.
She was enshrined alongside players like Gary Payton and Bernard King, as well as coaches like Rick Pitino and Sylvia Hatchell.
Staley was a two-time National Player of the Year at Virginia, leading the Cavaliers to the Final Four three times.
She's won three Olympic goal medals, played in the WNBA, and is currently the head coach at the University of South Carolina.
