Proudfoot, Ben. “Meet the First Woman Officially Drafted by the N.B.A.” New York Times Opinion video featuring Lusia Harris, 29 June 2021. “As a child growing up [in the 1970s] in rural Mississippi, Lusia “Lucy” Harris often stayed up past her bedtime watching her favorite N.B.A. players, dreaming of one day playing on the same courts. Reaching 6 feet 3 inches by the time she was in high school, Harris was often called “long and tall and that’s all” by her classmates — but she knew her height would be an asset on the court. And she wasn’t just tall enough to play the game. She was a rare talent who would go on to be a three-time national college champion and an Olympic silver medalist, making her a national sensation by the time she finished her college career.”
