Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 067989196X, Paperback)

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.
