ABSTRACT

For the past five years, I have been a Division I Women’s Basketball player under the National Collegiate Athletic Association. I have played at two different schools, I have spoken to numerous investigators and lawyers, and I am now on my third set of college basketball coaches.

Despite the obvious need for equality, a great disparity still exists in intercollegiate athletics in regard to opportunities provided for men ...
