Ballin' with Barack

While Johnny Dawkins was contemplating leaving Durham for greener pastures out west, former Blue Devil Alison Bales was on Presidential hopeful Barack Obama's team in the "3-on-3 Challenge for Change" at Maple Crest Middle School in Kokomo, Ind. Bales, who plays for the WNBA's Indiana Fever, teamed up Obama, who is hoping a win in the Hoosier state can put away fellow democrat Hillary Clinton. Maybe a 15-5 victory over the opposition on the hardwood is a harbinger for the Illinois native's chances in the state's voting booths on May 6.
