Hartley, Smith share more than a first name

Before UConn sophomore Bria Hartley and Louisville freshman Bria Smith went onto make waves in AAU circles with the Exodus and Philly Belles programs, they were occasional teammates in Long Island basketball circles.

Tomorrow night they will square off for the first time in college when Louisville hosts UConn. Hartley is the Huskies' second-leading scorer with an average of 14.3 points per game although that number jumps to 16.5 against ranked teams. Smith, the only Louisville player to start every game this season, is averaging 10.3 points per game.

"I have known her since we were really young probably fourth or fifth grade and I played with her a couple of times," Hartley said. "We are actually pretty close friends so it will be fun playing against her. She is a good player, we even had the same trained we worked out with Jerry Powell. She is a good player and I know she is going to do well there."
