    Girl, 11, benched from basketball game for refusing to wear a dress

    When 11-year-old Rachel Manfredini is on the basketball court, her height is a considerable asset. But at 5’7″, the fifth grader is self-conscious about it during regular school hours, particularly after years of being told her shorts and dresses don’t meet dress code. That’s why she’s stopped wearing dresses altogether, her mother says, and when she refused to do so earlier this week, her coach at West Cottonwood Junior High School benched her.

    A Look Back at 80 Years of Olympic Basketball Uniforms

    Basketball — which was invented by a Canadian in 1891 — was popularized in the United States after the U.S. team won the gold medal in the event at the 1936 Summer Olympic Games in Berlin. Throughout the years, as the sport became recognized and played by other countries around the world, there was more competition for the U.S. team, who won gold at the Olympics from 1936 to 1968.One of the greatest controversies in Olympic history was during the 1972 men’s basketball finals; the Soviet Union beat the US team by a single point — in the final three seconds — but some people credited the win to unfair referees and technical issues. Despite the chaos of that game, which went down in history, the U.S. team has won over 75% of the Olympic basketball tournaments to date.This year, the U.S. team — with all-star players like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Carmelo Anthony — is once again dominating its competitors, putting them head-to-head against Serbia in the finals today, at 2:45pm on NBC.Through victories and losses, we look back at 80 years of Olympic basketball uniforms.Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed every day.

    Villanova Wins March Madness 2016! A Look Back at the 16 Most Stylish Players From This Year’s Tournament

    NCAA March Madness 2016 has come to an exciting end! Villanova took home the championship title last night in buzzer-beater fashion, with a perfect 3-point swoosh by player Kris Jenkins against the North Carolina Tar Heels. In what’s been widely considered a historical game, both teams took the court shedding their blood, sweat, and tears in one of the most competitive match-ups this season — even legendary baller Michael Jordan took the stands — on his feet — during the final moments. (His team lost). And for ‘Nova star player Ryan Arcidiacono, a graduating senior who had the game-winning assist, this sweet victory could land him a spot in the NBA draft. In an interview with NBA interviewer Craig Sager, Arcidiacono said, “We are a complete team… we stick together and we play hard.” And that, they did.Here at Yahoo Style, we chose our “Sweet 16” — top-seed players who have not only persevered throughout the season, but have done so in undeniable style.Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

Post-game press conferences aren’t just a forum for reflection, they’re a stage to set trends. (Thank you, Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook for giving the world the glasses without lenses look.) Now with social media, these ballers can put their other passion — fashion — on display.

    Taking obvious inspiration from the setting, Gigi Hadid wore a sheer white button down shirt with her last name embroidered on the back. But the detailing is where the sports influence in her outfit stopped. She completed the look with black pants and Louboutin heels not even made for walking. Her boyfriend, singer Cody Simpson, also didn’t dress for the occasion, instead mixing Jimi Hendrix with Harry Styles in Chelsea boots, a leather jacket, and beanie.Source: Yahoo Magazines PYC
