HBO Sports will air the Women of Troy documentary on March 10, the network announced Thursday.
The film will focus the collegiate career of Hall of Famer Cheryl Miller at the University of Southern California, and explore the Trojans’ impact on the game of women’s basketball. Miller attended USC just 10 years after Title IX was passed in 1972.
The 59-minute documentary will air 9 p.m. ET on HBO and will be available on demand the following day. A new teaser was released last week.
“At 22, I was considered by everyone the greatest player in women’s basketball,” Miller says to open the one-minute clip.
“She’s faster than all your guards,” said UConn head coach Geno Auriemma, “and she plays at the rim. That’s the next evolution of college women’s basketball.”
The film also features interviews with Cynthia Cooper, Paula and Pam McGee, Juliette Robinson, Rhonda Windham and Trojans head coach Linda Sharp and will highlight the 1983 national championship game between USC and Louisiana Tech.
“These women were trailblazers whose talent and charisma created new possibilities for women in basketball and in countless other pursuits,” says Alison Ellwood, director of Women of Troy. “Cheryl Miller, Cynthia Cooper and their teammates left the game of the past behind and created the game we know and love today.”
