Although 2020 was certainly a year everyone wants to forget, women made a significant impact in a variety of sports. For one final time in 2020, San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon made history when she became the first woman to direct a team in NBA history, after head coach Greg Popovich was ejected with 3:56 remaining in the second quarter.

Hammon already made history before Wednesday’s game, which is where I want to begin.
