It all started with a flashy behind-the-back dribble that became a midrange rattler in the season opener. As the Louis Brown Athletic Center crowd excitedly gasped over the street-ball move, 5-foot-4 Shakena Richardson stood tall. But the road was no easier for the freshman guard.

the doctor ordered. And it was. The Knights returned to the team
