Book review

The first women's intercollegiate basketball game was played in San Francisco on April 4, 1896 between the Universities of Stanford and California, Berkeley.

In this time capsule of media reports, more than 50 contemporary newspaper articles portray the hoopla leading up to the big game, the pressure on the players, the excitement of the contest, and the controversial aftermath.

Articles cover training, practice games, uniforms, cheers, diets, rewards, criticisms, and the exclusion of male spectators.

Women's college basketball flourished briefly in the late 19th century before restrictive rules limited competition. Stanford and California terminated intercollegiate team sports in 1899 and did not resume them for 75 years, until after the passage of Title IX.

All college basketball players and women athletes owe their heritage to the pioneers who organized and played in this inaugural game.

The Lost Century of Sports Collection publishes anthologies from America's sporting heritage.
