Elena Delle Donne said today at the University of Delaware that she's been burned out on basketball since she was 15 or 16 years old. Delle Donne, who had originally committed to UConn, decided to transfer to Delaware and was subsequently released by Huskies coach Geno Auriemma. She was introduced today as she joined the Delaware volleyball team.
"Basketball is not part of my life right now," she told the Delaware News Journal.
Delle Donne played volleyball during her senior season in high school and decided that she "wanted to get back to that."
