We take it hard to the tin this
week, with a lively roundtable reminiscence of the oft-overlooked,
but undeniably influential Women's Professional Basketball League
(WBL) of 1978-81 - with four of its pioneering players that helped
pave the way for today's flourishing female pro hoops scene.
Liz "Bandit" Galloway
(Chicago Hustle); Charlene McWhorter
(Hustle, Washington Metros, Milwaukee Does, St.
Louis Streak); Adrian Mitchell-Newell
Streak; LPBA Southern California Breeze); and
episode 28 guest "Machine Gun" Molly Bolin
(Iowa Cornets, San Francisco Pioneers; Breeze; WABA
Columbus Minks), join for an intimate discussion about the rapid
rise, untimely fall, and heartening modern-day rediscovery of the
WBL - catalyzed by their collective involvement in Legends of the Ball
, a new
nonprofit dedicated to preserving the foundational history of the
league and all that's come because of it.
