Audra Smith Named ACC Women's Basketball Legend

Smith will be honored at the 2015 ACC Women's Basketball Tournament

No one in Coach Ryan's program knows the system better than assistant coach and recruiting coordinator, Audra Smith. She has been associated with the University of Virginia women's basketball program for 14 years, 10 as a coach and four as a player.

As a player at Virginia, Smith was a member of the Cavaliers team that competed in three consecutive Final Fours (1990, 1991 and 1992). She was a four-year letterwinner and averaged 3.6 points and 3.6 rebounds for her career.

After finishing her playing career for Coach Ryan in 1992, Smith came to the coaching staff in 1994 as the restricted earnings coach. After two years, she was elevated to a full-time position where she assisted with player development of the guards and worked extensively in recruiting and scouting. In May of 2000, she was promoted to recruiting coordinator.

In high school, she was named Honorable Mention All-America by Street and Smith's and was named Miss Georgia Basketball in 1988. She led Baldwin High in Milledgeville, Ga., to three consecutive Georgia AAAA state championships and was named the MVP of the state tournament as a junior in 1987.

Smith graduated from Virginia in 1992 with a degree in sociology. Upon graduation, she worked as a Child and Adolescent Counselor and as a social worker with the Department of Family and Children Services in Milledgeville, Ga.

Smith is married to former UVa basketball player Anthony Oliver and has a son, A.J. (4) and a daughter, Adria (3).
