Kathy Colombo, her daughter, Mandy, and sister, Chrissy Ewasko, flew to Louisville, Kentucky to see former Abington Heights High School basketball star Becky Burke play at the KFC Yum Center. They have attended Burke's games in Pa., Conn., or N.J., but wanted to see her play on her home court in her senior year.

Burke gave them VIP treatment, and they got access to the team's practice and seats at the game. Burke also gave them a tour of Louisville.

The Lady Cardinals defeated Syracuse, 89-62, during the game the group attended. Burke scored a career-high 28 points and tied a team record with eight 3-pointers.
