Synopsis: From two-time Oscar-nominated director Ben Proudfoot and executive producer Shaquille O’Neal, The Queen of Basketball is an electrifying portrait of Lusia “Lucy” Harris who scored the first basket in women’s Olympic history and was the first and only woman officially drafted into the N.B.A. Despite her incredible accomplishments, Harris, who died unexpectedly on January 18, has remained largely unknown — until now. Here, she shares her story in her own words.
