Remembering Luisa Harris The NBA Legend

Written by on January 20, 2022

USA Basketball mourns the loss of The Queen of Basketball, Lusia Harris. Lusia was a 1976 Olympic silver medalist, scored the first points in Olympic women’s basketball history & became the first Black woman inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 1992.

Athletes and admirers are paying tribute to Lusia Harris, the women’s basketball legend who died Tuesday at age 66.

Harris may not be a household name, but her credentials speak for themselves: She led her college team to three championships in the 1970s, scored the first points in the history of Olympic women’s basketball and was the only woman to be officially drafted by the NBA.
