It's been a good week for DePauw women's basketball coach Kris Huffman.

She guided her No. 1 ranked team to a pair of victories over top competition in Puerto Rico, and on Friday it was announced Huffman will be inducted into the Indiana High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

She was also given the Silver Medal Award, which is presented annually to a person based upon outstanding contributions to Indiana high school basketball in a capacity other than being a high school player or coach.

Silver Medal Award winners are considered to be inducted into the hall of fame.

Huffman has previously been inducted into the Iowa Basketball Hall of Fame.

In 20 seasons as head coach of DPU Huffman has a 441-102 career record and won a national championship in 2007. DPU also reached the national semifinals in 2002.

Huffman is a four-time honoree as National Coach of the Year and her teams have won conference championships in 13 of the last 16 seasons.

As a player, Huffman was named Iowa's Miss Basketball in 1985, leading Fort Dodge to a state championship.

Huffman graduated the University of Northern Iowa as the school's second all-time leading scorer, and had a record .483 career three-point shooting percentage.
