Nicole Lewis's absorbing narration of the U.S. Women's Basketball team's path to the 1976 Olympics in Montreal creates a courtside experience for listeners. Led by coach Billie Moore, the underdog American team, who would go on to illustrious playing and coaching careers, vied for a medal and a chance to grow their sport. Lewis's light characterizations of quoted players and coaches, including Pat Head and Lusia Harris, reflect their tenacity and passion on and off the court. Despite the pervasive sexism and racism of the time, the legacy of these trailblazing ballers continues through the WNBA and expanded youth basketball programs of today. Maraniss's narrative nonfiction combined with Lewis's vibrant performance creates a compelling production for teen and adult sports fans alike.
