College basketball is nothing new for Gabrielle Ludwig, who has played on both women's and men's teams.
Ludwig, 50, is a transsexual woman who has been the focus of national print and broadcast media attention, according to the Contra Costa Times. A "blitz" of reporters, including NBC Bay Area, were on hand Saturday to watch the 6-foot-8 Fremont resident play in Mission College's 103-58 win on Saturday afternoon.
Ludwig, who played junior college basketball for Nassau College 30 years ago, is a Desert Storm veteran who had a sex change operation in July.
It is believed she is the first person to compete in collegiate athletics for teams of both genders.
