Description: In the spring of 1995, twelve extraordinary basketball players were chosen to represent the United States in the year-long march to the 1996 Summer Olympics. For Rebecca Lobo, Sheryl Swoopes, Lisa Leslie, and their teammates, winning the gold medal was only one of many goals. Around them swirled the dreams of the millions of young girls who played organized basketball, the hopes of the fans who sent the team an average of 125 pounds of fan mail each month, the multimillion-dollar bets of Nike, Champion, and other corporate sponsors, the promise of a new women's professional league, and not least, the hopes of female athletes across the country to finally gain the respect accorded male athletes.

These women upon whom so much pressure rested included a runway model (who also happens to be one of the few women players able to dunk), a forward who barely survived a car accident that left her in coma, a collegiate sensation struggling to live up to her rep and her huge marketing contract from Reebok, a superstar known as "the female Michael Jordan", and a controversial, unrelenting coach. How they came together, both on and off the court, is the subject of this wonderful celebration of the female athlete.
