After learning of the FIBA ban on headgear right as she wanted to go pro, Massachusetts’ scoring record holder Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir had to figure out what to do. Her two loves of Islam and basketball never conflicted before—neither when she was a top high school player from Springfield nor during her collegiate run at Memphis and Indiana State.

Although her drive to make it on to the professional court was fierce, the FIBA ban forced Abdul-Qaadir to put her foot on the brake. Watch the trailer to her documentary Life Without Basketball above.
