Katie Smith Biography

Katie Smith was born June 4, 1974 is an American professional basketball player for the Detroit Shock.  Her primary position is shooting guard, although she sometimes plays small forward or point guard.

Smith was born in Lancaster, Ohio and spent her formative years in Logan, Ohio. She grew up in a family of student-athletes. Her brother John Smith won a national championship in 1993 as the center for Mount Union. She began playing basketball as early as the 5th grade on a boys' team and took tap dance and ballet lessons as a youngster. In high school she was named the national Gatorade National Player of the Year during her senior year as she guided the Lady Chieftains to the Division I Ohio Girls' Basketball state championship game.  Smith attended the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio from 1992 to 1996, and helped lead the Buckeyes to a Big Ten championship and the NCAA title game her freshman year. During her career at OSU, Smith broke the Big Ten scoring record for points scored in a career, in men's or women's basketball. She was voted Big Ten MVP as a senior.  Smith graduated in 1996 with a degree in zoology. On January 21, 2001, Ohio State honored her as the first female Buckeye athlete to have her number retired. She was also inducted into the Ohio State Varsity O Hall of Fame in October 2001.  Smith played for the Columbus Quest of the ABL, helping the team to win both League championships in its only two full seasons of existence.

Smith currently plays for the Detroit Shock in the Women's National Basketball Association WNBA. In 2005, she became the first American female basketball player to score 5,000 total points in a professional career. On August 16, 2007 she became the first professional women's basketball player to score 6000 career points (ABL and WNBA combined).  From 1999 to 2005 Smith played for the Minnesota Lynx where her outside shooting was the central focus of the Lynx offense. On July 30, 2005, Smith was traded to the Detroit Shock along with the Lynx's 2006 second round pick, for Chandi Jones, Stacey Thomas and the Shock's 2006 first round draft pick.  In 2006, Smith became the first WNBA player to win the All Star game as a member of both the eastern and western conference teams. She also became the only player to earn both ABL and WNBA championship rings when the Shock won the WNBA title, defeating the Sacramento Monarchs, the same year.  She is 3rd in the list of all time leaders in scoring in the WNBA behind Lisa Leslie and Tina Thompson.  Smith was the MVP of the 2008 WNBA Finals, when the Detroit Shock beat the San Antonio Silver Stars 3-0.
