Summary
  • 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
  • Agnes Morley describes growing up on her family's ranch in New Mexico, attending school at Stanford University, and participating in the first basketball game played between two women's college teams on April 4, 1896
