Last month, national attention was brought to the inferior treatment of the NCAA Women’s Basketball players compared to their male counterparts. Although visual representation is something the world was recently able to glimpse, knowledge of the disparities between women and men in college and professional basketball is not a new discovery.
She Got Game: Exploring the Disparities in Women’s Basketball is a panel discussion led by women athletes that will dive deeply into past, present, and future concerns in women's basketball and offer a platform to current players and athletes who feel their voices are unheard. Featuring basketball greats such as Roberta Williams (Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame inductee), Special Jennings (head basketball coach at Montverde Academy), Nola Henry (support staff for the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun), and Quand Robinson-Thomas (award-winning producer for NBA TV) viewers will be able to engage with women whose love for the game of basketball continues throughout their professional careers.

She Got Game: Exploring the Disparities in Women’s Basketball will be broadcasted live on Thursday, April 22, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. on Zoom and Avery Research Center’s streaming platforms.
