Asked to share the story of her winding path to a spot on the Washington Mystics’ roster, center Quanitra Hollingsworth waxed poetic:

“In the beginning...” she began, before laughing and taking a less dramatic approach.

That Homeric tone may actually have been appropriate given her story, a global basketball odyssey that took her to college at age 15 and even saw her gain Turkish citizenship to play in the London Olympics. Now her path has wound back to D.C., where she has a chance to build a standout WNBA career in the place where it all began.

As much as I love basketball, I would have preferred that "Q" entered medical school. That was her original career goal. She has a brilliant mind that could lead her to great heights in medicine. Perhaps after her basketball career is over, she will achieve her original goal.

There was a great article in this Sunday's Va Pilot about Q and her charitable foundation.

Quanitra Hollingsworth frequently uses her 6-foot-5-inch support to her advantage on a basketball court.

"But a WNBA maestro and Olympian from Chesapeake also uses it in her other pursuit with At Your Best: The Quanitra Hollingsworth Foundation. It raises income and matches Hampton Roads-, Richmond- and Washington-area children with education, aptness or devout needs with nonprofits that can help, such as Children’s Harbor."
