FROM COACH RABU LEYVA

“Aunisty fills up the (statistics) sheet night in and night out. She’s gotten better every year she’s been in the program. She came in as a shooter (as a freshman), but she comes back every year with something new in her game. Her goal this year was to be the most complete player she could be. When she goes to college, she doesn’t want to be just a scorer. She wants to be able to affect games in other ways. College coaches are seeing somebody who’s gonna work hard to make herself better. I think that’s why she has all of these scholarship offers.”

SMITH ON BEING MS. INSIDE

“That’s exciting. It’s another accomplishment that I’m blessed to have. A lot of people in my family were voting for me. I know my mom sent it to my stepmom and they have a huge family, so they probably played a big part. I’m also grateful to my grandparents — they’ve been a huge part of this journey and are very supportive of me. I’m also grateful to my mom and the Booker T. Washington community. They’ve built me into the player I am today.”

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Led the Class 6A No. 10 Hornets in scoring and was second in rebounds and steals. Shot 37.1% from 3-point range.
