Smith named WBCA high school honorable mention all-America

FAYETTEVILLE – Tanisha Smith was named to the Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Association’s high school all-America team as an honorable mention, University of Arkansas women’s basketball coach Susie Gardner announced today. Smith is one of four early signees for the Lady Razorback basketball team. Leading Lincoln Prep of Kansas City, Mo., to an undefeated conference title this season, Smith averaged 27 ppg for the Tigers. Coach Jeff Atkins has Lincoln into the Class AAAA state playoffs this week after a 12-0 run in conference and a 20-4 overall record. The 6-2 forward has also been nominated for the McDonald’s All-America game. The WBCA selects 20 players for the all-America team and 20 players as honorable mention each season. The last Lady Razorback to earn WBCA honors was former post Ruby Vaden in 2002. Earlier in February, Smith earned her career 1,000th point at Lincoln, and in pre-conference play scored 50 of Lincoln’s 98 points in a non-conference contest.
