University of Connecticut women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma called Shelly Pennefather the “Larry Bird of women’s basketball.” She was at one time the highest-paid female basketball player in the world. This is a wonderful story about her journey from the hardcourt at Villanova University to becoming a Poor Clare nun.

A wonderful story. Thanks to ESPN for covering it.
