BB&B Quick Hitter: Katie Barnes on WNBA players influencing the Georgia election

Katie Barnes of ESPN writes about women's basketball and social issues. On this week's show, Katie joins Monica and King to break down how the WNBA players had a major influence on the Georgia Senate runoff elections with the Atlanta Dream players actively organizing against the co-owner of their team (Kelly Loeffler) and raising the profile of (and money for) Loeffler's opponent, who defeated her in Tuesday's election. The WNBA players have been at the forefront of social change and this was a major triumph for them. In addition to the political discussion, Katie has some great stories about the future of the UConn Women's program, parity in Women's college hoop, what the Pandemic might mean for the 2021 NCAA Tournament, and how it felt for Oprah Winfrey to publicly recognize and praise Katie's work.Be sure to subscribe to the channel, follow @purehoopsmedia on social and visit www.purehoopsmedia.com for their library of shows featuring stellar guests, deep dive story telling and unique basketball analysis.
