Summary

Judy Runge, a young and ambitious basketball coach, arrived at the University of Oregon in 1993 and discovered a team--the Oregon Ducks--demoralized by its worst season in almost two decades and ignored and underfunded in a male-dominated athletic department.Fighting a legal battle with the administration for equal funding and support, Runge taught the players the importance of self-esteem and commitment, instilling in them a thirst for winning. In the course of a year, she changed university policy, raised the team?s motivation and morale, and exceeded all expectations but her own by leading the Ducks to a victorious season.Full Court Press is a poignant, entertaining, exuberant look at a sport that is capturing the American imagination and a moving profile of women who have learned to shatter barriers and win against the odds. Praise from Barbara Ehrenreich, Mary Pipher, Donna Lopiano, and excellent media reviews. The popularity of women?s basketball has exploded, especially after the American women?s Gold sweep at the 1996 Olympics. Publishing coincides with the WNBA championships.
