"Ann Meyers Drysdale has been one of the greatest stars in the history of basketball. But her rise wasn't without controversy. Her 1979 NBA bid to play with the Indiana Pacers brought a barrage of criticism. But Ann simply wanted to play among the best. She had always competed with the guys, and she never let anyone keep her down. A female first in many categories, Meyers Drysdale was the first woman ever signed to a four-year athletic scholarship to UCLA, where she remains the only four-time Bruin basketball All American, male or female. Ann competed in five ABC Sports' Superstars, winning three in a row for the women. She became the only woman to be asked to compete in the Men's Superstars. After her athletic career Ann did color commentary for national stations, and the 1984 Olympic games with ABC. She covered the 2000, 2004, and 2008, 2012 Olympics for NBC. Ann has worked for ESPN for over 25 years, broadcasting men's and women's basketball and Championship games, and has also worked the Men's NCAA Tournament games on CBS. She continues to do work with FOX Sports and others. She and her husband Don Drysdale, legendary pitcher & announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, became the first married couple enshrined in their respective sports' Halls of Fame. Ann is the only female Vice President in the NBA (Phoenix Suns) and the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury, which has won two WNBA Championships since she took over four years ago. The New York Times featured her prominently in a piece in August called "Pioneers Continue to Shepherd Women's Basketball." Time Magazine recently named her one of the ten greatest female athletes of all time"--
