Nice story from Lauren Kirschman: When Beaver Falls won a women’s basketball national championship

Joy Jeter still remembers sitting on a bus to Boston in 1987, reading and then passing along positive sayings as the University of New Haven women’s basketball team made its way to the NCAA Division II national championship game.

The Chargers needed the extra boost of confidence. They were the underdogs, after all. Cal-Poly Pomona was the two-time defending national champion. New Haven, on the other hand, had just earned the program’s first NCAA Tournament win that season.

Speaking of history and legacy: Storm’s Karen Bryant, first executive of women’s basketball in Seattle, starts a new life

Karen Bryant pulls a poster out of a half-full box. It’s an 18-year-old Seattle Reign ad promoting the defunct American Basketball League.

IT’S ABOUT COMMITMENT.

IT’S ABOUT RESPECT.

IT’S ABOUT REWRITING HISTORY.

IT’S ABOUT !&+%*! TIME.

She laughs at the audacity. She finds another ad.

On October 27th, God will look down from the heavens and see women playing professional basketball.

There are so many boxes, so many memories. Cards from Seattle Children’s Hospital patients. Letters from dads who took their daughters to a WNBA game for the first time. Thank-you notes from women proud to watch other women live their dreams on a basketball court.

Speaking of assistants: Ex-Michigan State women’s basketball star Lindsay Bowen coaching now

Bowen, who is entering her second season as an assistant at Florida International, would like to duplicate the success she had in East Lansing when she helped the Spartans win a Big Ten title and reach the 2005 national championship game.

“I would love to put a program on the map or take them to a national championship or win championships,” Bowen said. “That’s what I dreamed about when I was a little girl and it came true in the playing days, so hopefully it comes true in the coaching days, too.”

Nice to know she’s still playing: Polish club Basket ROW Rybnik has announced the signing of American power forward Drey Mingo.
