Elena Delle Donne is Back

She was the top recruit in the nation several years ago, chose UConn over Tennessee (and many others) and then quit the team after one day. Initially, "burnout" was cited, but the fact was that Delle Donne wanted to move back home to Delaware to be near an older sister with whom she is very close and who has significant disabilities. Delle Donne enrolled at the University of Delaware, played volleyball, and then couldn't resist the urge to return to basketball.

UConn apparently was very good about her leaving. This is one kid who seemingly has her head on straight.

Here's the story of her debut.

All of a sudden, Delaware women's basketball is on the map.
