I do think part of the appeal of the women's game is that because they are not physically able to

jump as high or run as fast causes them to play a more team type game. Passing is emphasized and they have to finish layups rather than just dunk the ball. You do see some wild shots in the women's game from close range that you never see in the men's game. Shots that go over the backboard or even clank the bottom of the backboard, some really ugly stuff. Usually though at the top teams, say 5 or so of them, you see pretty good ball movement. Remember when dunking was not allowed in the men's game and they missed layups too. That is why I will always remember bill Walton's 23 of 24 shots made in the finals against Memphis because he did not dunk one ball. You do see some ugly layups in the women's game and some of the shots on fast breaks are completely out of control, even with the top 5 teams, and you rarely see that in the men's game.
