FLINT, Mich. -- Paula McGee, svelte and with the right color thing going on in makeup and clothes, trendy eyeglasses sitting in just the right place on her nose, and the aplomb of Loretta Young in her walk and movements, is a preacher. A darn good-looking Baptist preacher. Her mission, she says, is not just to save souls, but to help God empower them. Women's souls.

Pamela McGee spent two days dressed down in an orange jumpsuit in a jail cell in Sacramento. There was no Nike swoosh on this outfit. It was January 1998, years removed from when Pamela and twin sister Paula helped USC win the 1983 and '84 national championships in women's basketball. Her private block in the civil section was across the hallway from a conglomeration of alleged criminal offenders.

Fourteen years . . . and the memory lingers, like a treasured snapshot in an old album. It's from the Pam and Paula McGee family album. But for one moment in the summer of 1984, it went into a few million albums.

It was one of the magic moments of the 1984 Summer Olympics--one that transcended the gold-medal winning performance by the U.S. women's basketball team. It was Pam McGee, U.S. team forward, on the award platform in the Forum, gold medal around her neck, searching for her twin sister, Paula, in the crowd. It was Pam and Paula minutes later, crying, embracing. And it was Pam putting her medal around Paula's neck. It was a spontaneous, loving gesture--a gesture that touched a nation.

Many players from USC's two-time national championship team would prove to be successful off the court, too. One of the more impressive post-basketball resumes belongs to guard Melissa Ward, a walk-on, who became an Air Force pilot and now works for United Airlines. She is one of eight African American female pilots for the airline, and the first and only African American female flight captain for a major passenger airline. "I wasn't trying to be the 'first' anything," Ward said.
