Danielle Scott and Angelica Suffren made history as the two Black referees became the first pair of women to officiate an NBA game together. The event occurred during the NBA Summer League’s California Classic just before the Fourth of July holiday.

The Summer League game brought together young players from the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami HEAT as pointed out by Marc J. Spears of ESPN’s The Undefeated.

“First time I’ve ever seen two black women referee an NBA game of any kind. Violet Palmer would be proud Danielle Scott and Angelica Suffren reffing at the California Classic Summer League Lakers versus Heat,” Spears shared online.

Violet Palmer was the first woman to referee an NBA regular season and a playoff game.
