From the moment Mo'ne Davis, the Little League World Series phenom, burst onto the national sports and pop culture scenes two weeks ago, we heard about how baseball isn't actually her true love.
Yes, throwing a shutout in the LLWS for Philadelphia's Taney Dragons is a nice way get on the cover of Sports Illustrated and all, but she loves basketball. Her true ambition is playing at the University of Connecticut, then eventually in the WNBA.
Davis, 13, will get back to the basketball life soon (after "The Today Show" and whatnot), but for now the Internet has found four-year-old footage of Mo'ne playing youth hoops with Philadelphia's Anderson Monarchs. Oh, and what's that? She's just devastating another kid with her crossover.
A Philly youngster breaking ankles on the basketball court? Hmmm. Wonder who she could have learned that from.
