Canada Rooting for The Queen of Basketball

From director Ben Proudfoot and executive producers Shaquille O’Neal and Stephen Curry, 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, 2022 has remained largely unknown — until now. Here, Ms. Harris shares her story in her own words.
