Great read about a former Wade Trophy winner who had a higher calling.
Whatever happened to Villanova basketball star Shelly Pennefather? 'So I made this deal with God.'

Cheryl Miller drew me to Women's Basketball. Shelly was my local version of Cheryl Miller.
Thank you for this--my heart is near bursting. She like my Aunt and Cousin (Order of St Joseph) non cloistered but dedicated. She looks like my 4th youngest child and that family could be mine--should a few more show up. The one that looks like her spent 4 years in Africa with the Kennedys Peace Corps---her mom taught her to give back to those less well off than you---(a bit of Catholic few know). I so proud of Shelly. Thanks for sharing this.

Quick followup.
The video version of Shelly's story was played on ESPN this weekend. featuring an appearance by Geno in which he compared Shelly to a Larry Bird type player.
Geno paraphrased: " She ( Shelly) wasn't going to run by you or jump over you but by the end of the game she the best player on the court."
Geno comes in at about the 35 seconds into the video.
