Little League World Series sensation Mo'Ne Davis is heading to the conference finals in Minnesota on Sunday.

The 13-year-old star pitcher from Philadelphia became the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series and the first to win a game on the mound. She has said her dream is to play for UConn and then eventually in the WNBA.

NCAA: Geno Auriemma broke the rules by calling Mo'ne Davis

Having heard that 13-year-old Little League World Series sensation Mo'ne Davis is a big UConn women's basketball fan, coach Geno Auriemma took the time to call the star pitcher to congratulate her on leading her team to the U.S. semifinals.

What a thoughtful gesture by Auriemma, right? Well, apparently not everybody thinks so.

The NCAA ruled Thursday that Auriemma had committed a secondary recruiting violation by calling Davis because coaches are not permitted to call a prospect until late in their junior year of high school. Secondary violations carry little if any punishment because they are typically inadvertent in nature and represent no significant competitive advantage.

Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
