Change Has Come

The July issue of Sports ‘N Spokes magazine features an excellent article, Change Has Come,  highlighting the growth and development of wheelchair basketball.  Written by two NWBA Hall of Famers, Dr. Bob Szyman and Tip Thiboutot, the article discusses the origins and progression of the NWBA from the late 1940’s on the Galesburg campus of the University of Illinois where the first National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament (NWBT) was held to the 65th NWBT held in Louisville, KY April 18-21, 2013.

In addition to some great history, the article includes some great images from the game including the Atlanta Junior Wheelchair Hawks, the 2012-2013 NWBA Prep National Champions.
