UPDATE
New article with additional information



Larry Tidwell was a Baylor assistant coach from 1992-98



LARRY TIDWELL

Resigning as head coach of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV)
to become the Chief of Staff for Texas Tech.

"Though not the Lady Raiders recruiting coordinator
- that title belongs to Erin Grant, a former Texas Tech player who Tidwell tried to sign in 2002 during his tenure as the recruiting coordinator at TCU -
Tidwell said recruiting will be his primary focus.

He plans to use his 40-plus years of coaching at the high school and college level in Texas to secure some of the state's top talent while tapping into the connections he's built recruiting players from at least 25 different countries. He brought in two recruiting classes that ranked in the top 10 nationally during his tenure at TCU, and he has signed 40 student-athletes who went on to play professionally, including five WNBA players."

Texas Tech only has 6 players listed on their roster right now. Crazy.
Does that include the juco players they just picked up?
The 3 recruits announced May 1 are not on the roster posted for May 3.
Technically speaking (according to the press release)
Mia Castaneda is signed and could be added to the roster.
Chinna Fair & Eryka Sidney have announced they will be joining Texas Tech ....
but are not signed. One possibility is that they are awaiting medical exam clearance.

Could change after May 3

NEW RULES







TRANSFER OUT

May 6, 2018

"The Purdue program landed Texas Tech transfer Lyndsey Whilby on Sunday. The 5-foot-11 guard was a freshman last season with the Lady Raiders, hitting a team-high 39 3-pointers and averaging 7.2 points. Whilby also visited Seton Hall and was scheduled to travel to Wake Forest but opted to cancel and commit to the Boilermakers. Whilby said Purdue will seek a waiver from the NCAA to gain immediate eligibility during the 2018-19 season. Otherwise, Whilby will have to sit out next season.

She attended McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia, leading the program to three straight state championships. Whilby was ranked one of the top 30 wing players in the 2017 class by ESPN's HoopGurlz and was selected as a four-star recruit by ProspectNation.com and a top 100 player by All Star Girls Report.

She's leaving Lubbock, Texas after a drama-filled season.

"I didn't enjoy it at all and the coaching change was part of it," said Whilby, who made nine starts last season.

Whilby played in the same AAU program as junior-to-be and Georgia native Dominique Oden several years ago. Whilby's mother, Regina McClain, played basketball at Iona.

Former A&M women's hoops standout Danni Williams joins Texas as graduate transfer

Texas A&M women's hoops standout Danni Williams is trading in her maroon for Texas burnt orange.

Texas women's basketball head coach Karen Aston announced Sunday evening that Williams will join the Longhorns as a graduate transfer next season and will be eligible to play immediately.

"We are extremely excited to bring Danni to the Forty Acres for the 2018-19 season," Aston said in a statement. "She is a seasoned basketball player who will immediately bring some maturity and experience to our backcourt. She is a gym rat also, which I think fits with our players, and is a sponge when it comes to wanting to be the best she can be in all areas of her life.

Danni clicked with our players and staff from the start and it seemed like it was a perfect fit. I appreciate her maturity and respect in the process, and believe she and our program will benefit from her coming to Texas. Lastly, there are very few that fit the mold of student-athlete the way that Danni does and we are proud to add her to the Longhorn Family."

Shaelyn Martin switches schools, sports for final year of eligibility

Senior guard Shaelyn Martin is headed to Salina to continue her academic and athletic career at Kansas Wesleyan University, a private school whose athletics teams compete in the NAIA. Martin, who has one year of eligibility left, is switching sports too. She will play volleyball for the Coyotes.

"It's a great volleyball program back at home and a great atmosphere and great community support there," Martin said. "It kind of made the decision pretty easy."

She said playing volleyball at some point was always a part of the plan.

"Going into college, I had always thought about using that fifth year for volleyball," Martin said. "It's a sport that I do not think most people realize I love as much as I do. Basketball always came first for me, but I've always enjoyed volleyball."

While K-State fans know her for her talent at basketball, Martin is no stranger to the volleyball court. She was Second Team All-State twice in high school at Salina Central, according to K-State Sports. Martin also ran track in high school.

"Volleyball, basketball and track were my three core sports starting in third and fourth grade," Martin said. "My mom was a volleyball coach growing up, so at a very young age I would do drills with the high school team she coached."

Martin plans to graduate from K-State in May with a degree in kinesiology and will pursue an master's in business administration at KWU before heading off to occupational therapy school.

"Having the opportunity to play and get my MBA in one year is going to be a good use for my year off," Martin said, adding air quotes around "year off."

Martin has attended school and played basketball in Manhattan for 4 years now. She started in games all of those years, including all 33 in her freshman year and all 32 in her sophomore year. She averaged 27 minutes per game over her career. She grew up dreaming of playing basketball at K-State, as she said following K-State's senior day victory over in-state rival Kansas.

"When you are that little girl and you want to play somewhere, to actually be able to do it has been one of the best experiences of my life," Martin said after beating Kansas 91-67.

Martin scored seven points and pulled down 10 rebounds in her 30 minutes of play in the rivalry game. For Martin, KWU was ultimately the right choice and the only one she really wanted.

"If I was going to play, I was going to play back at home," Martin said. "It was not a thing where I wanted to be recruited by a lot of people and have my choice, it was just I wanted to have some fun and have a fun time with a great staff."

"Head coach Bill Fennelly expects the Cyclones to benefit from the
program's first-ever appearance in the Preseason WNIT.

He likes the competitive opportunity that the Preseason WNIT provides.

"It will be a good way to find out if we are ready to play," Fennelly said. "We have a hard-working group of players. They expect more than what we accomplished last season and this is the time of year when you give yourself a chance to make that happen."
