    MOREHEAD – There might not be a better story of the good things college sports can be than Eriel McKee.

    It’s given her the chance to travel – she was in Missoula, Mont., and Pullman, Wash., over the weekend on a road trip with her University of Kentucky teammates – and she has shown her game nationwide on ESPN.

    She’s gotten to play the game in the NCAA Tournament just 30 miles from home.

    To many, it would seem like a dream, but reality has staggered Cann more than once. She’s gotten up stronger every time.
