Still Got Game 
Directed by Pamela Johnson

“I wanted to do something that was so different from what any other woman was doing at that time.”

Anita Ortega is no stranger to a challenge. Raised in South Los Angeles, she became the first in her family to go to college. She was a basketball star at UCLA and played for their 1978 national championship team. She is also the first Afro-Puerto Rican woman to run a police command. Ortega has made it her mission to be a positive presence in her community and on the court.
