Boo Williams-April 09: The first thing you may notice about Shannon Smith of the GA/Lina 76ers in the layup line is that she isn't 5-9 as the roster says. Closer to 5-6, don't let Smith's slight frame fool you, the Gastonia, N.C., native can play. She is a very crafty player that understands how to get the best out of what she has. She was a constant visitor to the foul line because she used her quick dribble to get into the paint and draw contact from much bigger players. Her 3-point range is excellent and she isn't afraid to take and make tough shots.

Bojangles Jan. 09: Shannon Smith showed the ability to hit the 3-point shot from just about anywhere on the court. Smith did a good job of getting her shot off in transition and was often times too quick for opposing guards to stay with. She penetrated the gaps well and found open teammates. Smith struggled against the presence of bigger athletic guards who forced her into several turnovers and errant shots.
