She has been on a basketball court as a player or coach since she was nine. So, where else would she feel most comfortable? “Besides relationships, which are number one, I say what the two areas are? My faith life — my faith in Christ and basketball, so I want to give back. As I look forward to March and what doors I hope will open in the basketball world, I want to give back,” Mitchell said. That means traveling to Africa with “Soles for Jesus,” speaking in the Milwaukee community, and doing prison ministry.
