In 1976, Tennessee was one of only six states in which women played six on six basketball. WUOT's Hannah Martin sat down with co-authors Bill Haltom and Amanda Swanson to talk about their book Full Court Press which tells the story of how Pat Summitt, a highschool basketball player, and a legal team changed the course of the game forever.  In Haltom's words, "the story of the doors that were opened because of this goes beyond sports."
