Basketball Belles: How Two Teams and One Scrappy Player Put Women’s Hoops on the Map

by Sue Macy

This dynamic picture book about the birth of women’s basketball will keep young readers riveted.

Raised on a cattle ranch, Agnes Morley was sent to Stanford University to learn to be a lady. Yet in no time she exchanged her breeches and spurs for bloomers and a basketball; and in April 1896 she made history. In a heart-pounding game against the University of California at Berkeley, Agnes led her team to victory in the first-ever intercollegiate women’s basketball game, earning national attention and putting women’s basketball on the map.
