A couple comments on conflicting sources:

Bertha Teague was inducted as a coach, not a contributor. Tex Winter was inducted as a contributor, not a coach. Tarzan Cooper was inducted as a contributor, not a player. Kevin McHale was inducted as a player, not a coach.

There may be conflicting sources that claim each of these to be false. In every case but McHale's, it would make more sense for the people at issue to have been inducted in the capacity they're listed. However, the hall of fame defines its own membership, and they've inducted them as I've listed above. I've changed it to reflect this.

Rebecca Lobo was inducted as a contributer, not a player. See http://www.hoophall.com/hall-of-famers/rebecca-lobo/ 108.31.18.121 (talk) 16:22, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Done Although she played Center for Uconn and the Liberty, you are correct that she was officially selected as a "Contributor" Given her importance to the growth of women's basketball, this is probably fitting even if it seems odd. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 17:39, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
