The Scouting Report
The Philadelphia Diamonds—featured on CBS Philly—take the court for the first time ever, facing off against the Houston Inferno in a game that marks the second week of play in the history of the Bikini Basketball Association. The team is led by local hoopsters Stephanie Orji—a standout at Cheyney University—and Carlene Hightower—who played some professional ball in Europe.
Bikini Basketball Association
Founded in 2013, the Bikini Basketball Association is comprised of five female teams in Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, and Philadelphia. Though the association's name suggests that players hit the court wearing swimwear, they actually play in tight-fitting spandex athletic gear that does not billow in the wind like traditional jerseys, threatening to fill with air and lift players off the court and out of the gymnasium.
