The correct answer to this question is 1892. Four years later, the first women's college basketball game took place on April 4, 1896. The game was between the colleges Stanford and the University of California. From then on, women continued making history in basketball.
Before a woman was allowed in the Harlem Globetrotters, it was an all-male team. Later, Olympian Lynette Woodward became the first female on the team in 1985. Before this, the WBA was created in 1977. At the time of creation, there were eight teams in the league. The league only lasted for three seasons, but today we have the WNBA.
