My alma mater, tiny Wayland Baptist College, has parents that strongly supported women's basketball. For decades, the Flying Queens were number one in the US. Any girl that wanted to make it big in basketball went to Wayland. They toured the world playing against the Russian teams, the Chinese teams, and other Olympic quality women's teams. Many of today's women's basketball coaches were Flying Queens. Then Title IX hit, and when larger universities increased their spending on women's sports, Wayland couldn't compete. So yeah, perhaps women have more opportunities, but their opportunities are more spread out and perhaps not as grand.
