QUEENS, N.Y. - One by one, each basketball made its way out the front door of the West Philadelphia row home. The ball that was scuffed and marked from being pounded into the playground court - gone.

But it's not Saintilus' considerable athletic ability that's the secret to his sudden success.

Dunn-Shaw's son, Clifford Dunn, a scholar and a star shooting guard on the 1992 city Public League championship team, was famous for passing up a basketball scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh in favor of an academic one. "I don't want to be a dumb athlete," he told a surprised audience in a speech at graduation.
