Who's got next in New York Metro

11/2/2008

Who's got next? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here is an athlete we recognized in November:

BRIA SMITH
CHRIST THE KING -- GIRLS' BASKETBALL

Chamique Holdsclaw. Sue Bird. Tina
Charles. Lorin Dixon. What do these
four college and pro stars have in
common? They all got their starts as
All-Americans at Christ the King.
Could Smith, now a sophomore, be the
next one to pick up the mantle at the
hoops powerhouse? So far, so good. The
high-scoring perimeter star filled it up
from Day 1, netting 23.7 points per
game to go along with 8.7 rebounds
and 5.0 steals per contest. She was
named first team All-City by the
Daily News and showed that the
Royals won't have to wait long before
unveiling their next All-American.
