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.
