Sad news that Anne Donovan takes the next step in life at the age of 56.

Accolades too numerous to list here.

Condolences and prayers to her family and the Lady Monarch family at Old Dominion and her WNBA families.

Anne Donovan, legendary women's basketball star and coach, dead at 56 - The Washington Post

“It hurt bad. To be totally honest, she was the only coach I ever played for that challenged me and forced me to be better,” said Tina Charles, who played for Donovan on the Connecticut Sun. “At a young age I didn’t understand it. For me it (stinks) because I always wanted to text her, thank you for being hard on me. Thank you for saying to me before practice you’re not taking a hook shot this practice, get to the basket, figure it out. It’s sad.”

That's really saying a lot! Is that a jab at someone? Anne was a wonderful mentor and a great ambassador for women's basketball!

She looked fairly healthy. I wonder if it was diagnosed?
