About this title


This text presents the inspiring story of America's foremost woman basketball player and her remarkable family.

From Publishers Weekly:

RuthAnn played basketball in college, became a teacher, married history teacher Dennis Lobo and taught her three children that "they could be anything they wanted." Possibly as a result, her daughter Rebecca went on to become the captain of the basketball team at the University of Connecticut, which won the national title in 1995, and the most outstanding player in that year's NCAA championship. She was named female athlete of the year by several groups and publications and has been selected for the women's national team that will represent the U.S. in this year's Olympics. In alternating chapters, mother and daughter write of their happy family and of their crises?for RuthAnn, a successful battle against breast cancer; for Rebecca, the struggle to excel on the court and one day to find a male not intimidated by her height (6'4"). Without being preachy, their book affectingly demonstrates in action that overworked term family values. Photos not seen by PW. 50,000 first printing; $70,000 ad/promo; author tour.
