Overview





Professional basketball isn't just for guys anymore - women's pro basketball

"has taken off like a rocket" (The New York Times). Shooting Stars introduces

young fans to the history of the women's game from its inception to the present

day. It chronicles the gold-medal victory of the American women's basketball

team at the '96 Olympics, then follows the team players (including Rebecca

Lobo, Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoops, Nikki McCray, and Dawn Stanley) into the

newly created Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) and American

Basketball League (ABL), where they now face each other as rivals. With eight

pages of full-color photos, this is one book no aspiring female hoop star will

want to be without.
