VCU's Q rockin' the Big Apple

The New York Liberty showed some love to former VCU star Quanitra Hollingsworth, who is contributing some solid reserve minutes for her new team. Big ups to Rams assistant coach Darren Guensch for spreading the link via Twitter.

Of particular interest was the following passage:

She finished high school at the age of 15 and was off to go play for the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams. As a young woman on a college campus, it was overwhelming for Hollingsworth, until she received some advice from one of her coaches. 

“My post coach told me ‘when you step out there, I want you to think of yourself as a woman amongst girls, no matter how old you are,’” Hollingsworth said. “With your presence, you should go out there and have that mentality each and every day. I carried that mentality through college.”

Hmmm.... Wasn't new Old Dominion assistant Amaka Agugua coaching VCU post players back then? Hey Mox, was Q talking about you?

Hollingsworth, who was traded to New York after two seasons with the Minnesota Lynx, is averaging 13 minutes a game and shooting 55 percent from the field for the surging Liberty, winners of four of their last five games.
