FORESTBURG — The jersey worn by Sanborn Central-Woonsocket’s Myah Selland during the past season is headed to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tenn., to be displayed in its “Ring of Honor” in recognition of her outstanding play for the 2016-17 season.
The “Ring of Honor” has become one of the most popular exhibits at the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. It provides a colorful backdrop to the Hall of Fame’s many archives as it also honors some young basketball players for their achievements in the sport.
Currently there are more than 100 jerseys hanging in the Ring of Honor, including high school and college All-Americans from the 2015-16 season. The same has been the case since the Hall of Fame opened in 1999, thus having numerous jersey’s from high-caliber athletes that once hung from the same rafters.
