ESPN – Even while she was making history on the baseball diamond, Mo’ne Davis always insisted her dream was to play basketball at Connecticut. The Little League World Series star proved she’s still shooting for that goal by earning a roster spot on her high school’s varsity girls’ basketball team as an eighth-grader.
Tina O’Malley, the director of girls’ athletics at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy (Philadelphia), confirmed Friday morning that the 5-foot-4 point guard is on the Blue Devils’ varsity roster.
Of course she makes the varsity basketball team as an 8th grader. I mean she already has an offer from UConn. But lets be honest, just how good is she? Has anyone else seen video evidence outside of Philadelphia that she is any good? Or is this just some media stunt? The coach isn’t sure on how much playing time she will receive. I wonder why? She’s been traveling the country promoting women’s sports and how they can compete with the boys. If she was that good, she would be on the boys varsity team. I’ll put the line on points per game average at 3.5.
