No. Women's Basketball began in 1892 at Smith College when Senda Berenson, a physical education teacher at Smith, modified James Naismith's rules for women. Naismith invented basketball in late 1891. In 1895, the game of Netball was invented by Clara Gregory Baer. Netball was derived from basketball and designed to be a non contact sport. Women were very instrumental in helping to develop and popularize the game of basketball.
Nancy Liebreman was the first women to play basketball and make it into the World Series!!!!!!!
