The Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame announced its 2011 class of inductees on Thursday in Oklahoma City.

The class is headlined by two professional basketball players, a leader of Oklahoma's first-family of football and the state's biggest athletics booster.

Here's a look at this year's inductees:

* John Starks and Crystal Robinson played high school and college basketball in Oklahoma before heading off to successful NBA and WNBA careers.

* Lucious Selmon was the oldest brother of Oklahoma's first-family of football. Lucious was the first of three Selmons that would dominate football in the state for more than a decade.

* Boone Pickens almost single-handedly changed the face of Oklahoma State athletics, making renovations to the stadium that now bears his name possible.

* Jim Bolding was an NCAA champion hurdler at OSU and a U.S. Olympian.

* Tommy Evans reached the pinnacle of collegiate wrestling as both a wrestler and a coach at OU.
