Muffet McGraw couldn't stop smiling today in Springfield, Massachusetts. And who could blame her?

Muffet's Hall of Fame weekend is underway.

Today, McGraw was given her orange blazer, the trademark of the Naismith Hall of Fame.

"Orange is not a color I've worn much in my career," McGraw joked. "But I'm really going to enjoy wearing this one."

The Notre Dame women's basketball coach will be officially enshrined tomorrow night, alongside basketball greats Tracy McGrady, Bill Self, former Bulls GM Jerry Krause and others.

Today, she could not hide her excitement, when she took the podium.

"I'm really going to enjoy (this), especially when I look up and see so many incredible coaches that have gone before me," McGraw said.

"But the thing that makes something like this really special, is the people you get to share it with, and I've got a long row of people coaches, friends, family, that make me so happy to share this moment with."
