The nations highest scoring woman's basketball player, (27.5 avg.) Elena Delle Donne was once almost a player for Geno Auriemma's UConn team. After transferring out of UConn, she said she was tired of basketball, ¿It was tough and I was scared, but I had to do it,¿ Delle Donne said of giving up basketball. ¿I couldn¿t keep lying to myself. That was the main thing; I was sick of being unhappy.¿
Transferring in the summer of her freshman year to play volley ball, Delle Donne went back to her old sport, and helped put the University Of Delaware Woman's Basketball team in their first Top 25 position.
