Bio: Emerging as part of the famous AIS team of the late 1990s, winning the 1999 WNBL Championship alongside the likes of Lauren Jackson and Penny Taylor, Smith came into her own at the Adelaide Lightning.

It was in South Australia the guard thrived under the added responsibility, producing impressive seasons before making the move west to join the Perth Lynx (now the West Coast Waves) in 2005.

Here Smith joined the WNBL elite, posting career high numbers (21.7ppg) and earning a spot in the Jayco Opals squad.

The country Victorian got her first taste of overseas basketball in 2004 with the Manchester Mystics in the British league before returning to Europe in 2006, joining Portuguese team CAB Madeira – winning the league title in her first season.

Smith returned to the WNBL and the Lynx, earning her second All-Star Five honour before before repeating the dose in the 2009/10 season at the Sydney Uni Flames. Cruelly, serious injury sidelined Smith for the 2010/11 campaign before another impressive season at the Bendigo Spirit.
Injury again ravaged Smith’s return to the Waves, restricting her to just six games after setting the competition alight, winning the MVP at the 2012 WNBL Pre-Season Tournament.

Career Highlights: WNBL All-Star Five: 2006, 2009, 2010.
