ABOUT WABA - The Women's American Basketball Association (WABA) is a name given to four professional women's basketball leagues in the United States. The first league played one season in 1984. The second league played an All-Star Tour in 1992 and then three full seasons from 1993-95. The third league played one season in 2002. The fourth league is in expansion and starts play in 2012. The first WABA was founded by Bill Byrne, founder of the WBL in hopes of cashing in on the USA Olympic team's success in Los Angeles in 1984. While some talented players played in the league (including Nancy Lieberman, Molly Bolin, Pamela McGee and Paula McGee) most of the league's teams folded before the league championship, which was won by Dallas over Chicago.
The WABA formed in 2001 and played one season in 2002. The 2002 championship game was played June 2, 2002 and won by the York City Noise.
