Q&A - Warwick's Adria Strothers


Player: Adria Strothers

School: Warwick High School

Class: 2016

Height: 5'4

Position: Guard
Committed to Hampton University

Nickname: Stephen Curry of Girls Basketball

Adria Strothers competes at a very high level and some may say -- beyond her years. The sophomore is one of the top 2016 rising prospects in state of Virginia as she has already verbally committed to Hampton University.

When asked what's been the secret to your success, Adria simply stated "consistently seeking to better my skills and overall game by working out as often as possible".

Shooting the rock comes natural as her father, Lamont Strothers (former CNU star and NBA player) was a lights-out shooter known to tickle the twine from downtown.

At the present, Adria leads the Lady Raiders and the former Peninsula District (PD) in scoring this season at 22.8ppg - on track to reach 1000 points by the end of her junior season. She's a dynamic offensive player who possesses phenomenal range, an ultra-smooth stroke and the handles to get by her defenders.

Strothers has been a key contributor to Warwick High's success thus far. The 5A #10 Lady Raiders were sitting atop of the former PD at (10-0) and Conference 10 at (2-0) entering the second week of January.
