Makes me wonder if she could have even been better under a different program the last 4 years. She has played well in her rookie season. I like her now that she wears red and not burnt orange!

Karen Aston was very close to her parents. She was head coach at North Carolina Charlotte and doing well, but their health was dodgy so she sought a position closer to central Arkansas, and when the North Texas University head coaching job became available, she jumped on it.
