The Southeastern Conference 2015 Class of Women's Legends showcases former student-athletes and coaches from all 14 SEC member institutions.

Sharon Fanning - Mississippi State
Basketball - Coach (1995-2012)

Sharon Fanning-Otis ended her tenure on the MSU sideline as the school's all-time wins leader with a 281-232 record. During the 2011-2012 campaign, she also became the 14th NCAA Division I coach to reach the 600 milestone (608-460) in her 36th year coaching on the collegiate level.

After taking MSU to the first of five WNIT in her third season at the helm, the next season she made Lady Bulldog basketball history by guiding her team to the first of the six NCAA Tournament berths. The sixth tournament run was also monumental as the program made it to the Sweet 16.
