Naama Shafir
This was an interesting story that really caught my eye. Naama Shafir is a Orthodox Jew from Israel that plays for the University Of Toledo Rockets. 

Last night she helped them beat USC 76-68 for the womens NIT Championship as well as scoring 40 points to win MVP. But, what was interesting to me was the fact that she had to get permission from here rabbi to play on Saturdays.
It's also was interesting because unlike all of here other teammates she had to walk to the arena. As well as after the game was over she walked back home. A
ll of these customs are part of being an orthodox Jew.
Even more impressive was the fact that to end the season the.

Rockets had gone on a 18 game winning streak including winning 6 straight to win the the NIT title. Congradtulations on your victory Naama as well as the whole Toledo Rockets team.
