What could be: 2024 Women’s National Basketball Championship Game: Cal (Berkley) vs Oregon University




The two best women’s college basketball teams will meet in the title game tonight on in the floor of the Chase Center in San Francisco.  Winning their Final Four semi-final games Saturday, the Bears and the Ducks will try to be the first women’s champion that will start five transgender athletes in this historic game.  These two teams have met two times this year with Oregon winning the first meeting in Eugene and losing the re-match game in Berkley.  The PAC Twelve did not have a conference tournament this year and both are co-champions of the PAC 12 for 2024.



With the rules change for transgender eligibility in 2021, both these teams took advantage and have packed their squads for the 2023-2024 season with the transgender athlete, each team has six players that were born male but now identify as female.  This is allowing them to participate as women as of Federal law. Both teams will start five transgender players, all freshmen, as the cream of women’s college basketball now goes through the veins of the transwoman athlete.  As of now, it is unknown if any of the athletes have undergone hormone treatment or gender conformation surgery.
