Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Women’s professional basketball in the United States has come a long way from the late 1970s’ Women’s Basketball League to today’s WNBA, just as women’s sports in general have reached ever greater heights. The "worst to first" journey of the Detroit Shock is one specific story within the larger saga. The dedication, perseverance, and hard work of the 2003 Shock can be seen as a microcosm of the broader struggle of women athletes for more acceptance, recognition, and respect. By their extraordinary deeds, the 2003 Shock made the sports world take notice of them, and helped to take women’s pro basketball to another level. For this they will always have a special place in the hearts of all who are proud to call themselves fans of women’s sports!
