Deeply-hued, photographic-like illustrations enliven the telling of the first women's basketball game. Adapted for women, this "men's game" proved just as demanding and every bit as exciting. Clever perspectives illustrate the concentration, effort, and groundbreaking enthusiasm experienced during this match-up between Stanford and Berkeley. A timeline of interesting women's basketball developments and an author's note round out this entertaining biographical tale of Stanford's leading basketball lady, Agnes Morley.
