Basketball in Bloomers

Did you know that women have been playing basketball in school almost as long as men? Agnes Morley, a cowgirl who grew up on a
cattle ranch in New Mexico, played in the very first women's college
basketball game in 1896.

Experience the excitement in Basketball Belles by Sue Macy and see how women in bloomers, tights and hair ribbons paved the way for women basketball players of today.
