UVa women's basketball signee Bria Smith named a McDonald's High School All-American

High school senior guard Bria Smith, a Class of 2011 signee for the Virginia women's basketball team, has been named a McDonald's High School All-American, it was announced last night. Among other honors, Smith is the No. 2 point guard and No. 7 player overall in the country, according to the All-Star Girls Report. She has also been ranked No. 7 overall by Blue Star Basketball and No. 8 overall by HoopGurlz.com.

Smith follows in the footsteps of current sophomore guard China Crosby, a 2009 McDonald's High School All-American.  

ESPN.com describes Smith as "[a] study in staying low and balanced, and letting speed and quickness do the work." Smith was a 2010 Parade Magazine All-America third team honoree and a member of the 2010 ESPN Rise All-American first team.

Smith, a 5'10" guard out of Christ the King High School in Flushing, NY, was a member of the 2010 USA Women's U17 World Championship Team. There, she was described as an aggressive guard who likes to penetrate, as well as a solid defender with quick hands and good lateral quickness. Smith averaged 5.1 points per game as Team USA went unbeaten in its eight tournament games and defeated France for the gold medal.

The McDonald's All-American game is scheduled for March 30 at 7:30 p.m. and will be live on ESPNU.
