_Women College Basketball Coaches_ traces history since 1892 through the current day. Selected women coaches are profiled along with contributors to the game. Also in ebook: 978-0-7864-5082-4.

Tall, powerful athletes surge toward the goal in the last seconds of a fiercely fought game, providing excitement to an arena full of basketball fans. Increasingly, challenging games like this are being played by women's college teams. With the passage of Title IX and the success of the WNBA (Women's National Basketball League), women's college teams have received more support and attention both from academic institutions and basketball fans. One of the primary reasons for the growing interest in women's college basketball is the dedication of the women who coach these student athletes to personal and athletic success. Women currently coach nearly 65 percent of the women’s basketball teams in all divisions of the NCAA. Their commitment to their sport and to their athletes has resulted in a game and a generation of athletes unlike any other. This analysis of the role of women coaches in college basketball provides a detailed history of women's involvement in college sports, as well as insights into the work of the great women coaches of the past and present, all highlighted through interviews with some of the most important women coaches of today.   

In recent years, womenís basketball has experienced phenomenal growth. That growth is measured by the number of women players and women coaches and by their achievements. As more women players elevate their game and as more women coach winning teams, societyís interest has grown. The explosive growth is a tribute to the tenacity of the women of the game and their love for women's basketball. It comes also from changes in the game itself, from legislation, from the growth and strength of basketball organizations in combination and from increased coverage by the media.

Midwest Book Review: Internet Book Watch
Women College Basketball Coaches by sociologist Rosemarie Skaine is an informed and informative study of the role women coaches play in the exciting and competitive arena of college basketball. From trends in program revenues, to statistical information concerning resource allocation, to the diversity of coaches and coaching styles, to college basketball game attendance, and more, Women College Basketball Coaches is an fact-filled, seminal, account of female influence in a widely popular collegiate sport. Enhanced with photos of the coaches, Women College Basketball Coaches is a welcome and highly recommended contribution to academic Sports History reference collections in general and especially commended to the attention of women's college basketball enthusiasts in particular.

Women in Sport & Physical Activity Journal
"The author, Rosemarie Skaine, deserves much praise for taking up the project of writing about important women who have devoted their lives, professionally and personally, to the advancement of women's basketball, and more broadly, girls and women's athletic education within the United States. . . .

"When critically read, I hope that this book will encourage women players and coaches and sport scientists to march onward, in the tradition of their foremothers, to persist in shaping the role of women in sport and documenting that history for future generations."
