Elizabeth Galloway McQuitter, the great WBL trailblazer and President of Legends of The Ball, joins host Howard Megdal for a rollicking romp through the incredible history of the WBL, an often-ignored league made up of nothing less than the trailblazers of Title IX who made the modern women's game possible. Hear about what life was like in those heady moments when the WBL finally turned pro women's basketball into an extended reality, with a lifespan second only to the WNBA. But hear, too, about the pain of the league's demise, and what lessons can be learned about it and applied to women's basketball to this day. We'll be telling WBL stories all year here at Locked On Women's Basketball and The Next, don't miss a moment!
