    Why is Cheryl Miller not more publicized for her contribution to women's basketball?

    She's a pioneer of the game. Even the WNBA rarely speak of her achievements. Hers is the first name I think of when I think of women's basketball. I wore #31 when I began playing basketball in 6th grade (1978)! There are other greats that put women's basketball on the map,but Cheryl is not mentioned nearly as much as these other players.

    Because we all know how the media is, first of all in the eye of mainstream media they see her as Black and a woman (which shouldn't be a weakness). But many of Cheryl Miller fans see her as a Black Professional Basketball Player that happens to be a woman. She also became a coach of a women's basketball team, her and her brother Reggie Miller are from Indiana the same state I'm from.

    Cheryl and Reggie Miller definitely are Ball'n!

      I knew she coached Phoenix WNBA team for a short while, but it seems like after that even the WNBA shunned her. But I definitely see where you're coming from. Thanks for your response.
