As Hoop Muses author Kate Fagan explains Iowa has a lineage of appreciating girls basketball going back more than 100 years. Her book includes the story of how officials tried to ban the Iowa state girls high school tournament in the  1920s but failed. https://www.amazon.com/Hoop-Muses-Ins…

“In vibrant color and style, Hoops Muses tells the vital stories that celebrate the history and tradition of our game.” —Sue Bird, WNBA legend

“To be a (women’s) hooper is to be part of a long and proud tradition … but one not often celebrated in popular culture. Hoops Muses is here to change that.”

Hoop Muses is Fagan’s fourth book, and it is a collaboration with curator (and former WNBA All-Star) Seimone Augustus and illustrator Sophia Chang.
