This week’s release “The Mighty Macs” is inspired by the true story of coach Cathy Rush, who took the basketball team from the tiny women’s college to three national championships in the early 1970’s, the dawn of women’s basketball. Now co-ed and called Immaculata University, it is a Catholic school sponsored by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and is proud to be considered the birthplace of modern American women’s basketball. Here’s an ESPN segment about the real-life team.
