40s- 70s beating all odds on talent and hustle in America making a mark that is historically unmatched. While public schools banned females from basketball to save them from damaging their female anatomy and organs my dad was recruiting young women to play on his barnstorming all women basketball team.

My dad Dempsey ran miss american teenager miss National Teenager Little Miss pagents to bring in income to keep The World Famous all female basketball barnstorming team on the road for almost 30 years. My garage was filled with converse shoes levis basketballs pa systems and gags that were used on the court to get the women through the doors of local gyms and the largest stadiums that hosted male pro ball players with barriers of sexist overtones in his way once those girls got to the jump shot the ball was in their court. Dropping their cowgirl hats holsters pistols boleras and vests as they enterered the court in a running circle that led to center court where the players intrigued crowds with their ball handling specialties spinning on fingertips bouncing balls down court with knees neck roles and more. Blindfold shootouts gunshots lassoing male opponants and hog tying were trademark gags of the team developed by my dad. Their showmanship and cowgirl theme seperate them from any other teams theme. They had sex appeal created by Hovland in the performance they put into the game.
