Tough tough loss for Iowa St

Growing pains due to inexperience?


We live 35 miles from the MSU campus in Springfield, MO. While these "Lady Bears" (what they call themselves) are most definitely a Cinderella team, they've kind of come together the last 3 weeks, have no quit, are well coached, and have Jackie Stiles as an assistant coach on the sidelines. Anyone who has followed WBB for a couple of decades or more should know that name, as she was a scoring machine, and led MSU (then Southwest Missouri State) to the final four.


Family reunion is in Branson every year since forever

Fly into Springfield

Beautiful country reminds of Texas Hill Country memories growing up

Salt of earth people

Definitely remember a hot shooter named Stiles!

Good for your local girls! Onward

LARRY TIDWELL

Larry Tidwell has dropped references to Texas Tech from his twitter account.
He is still listed on the Texas Tech WBB website as Assistant Coach/Chief of Staff.
Lots of buzz on the street ...
but no official confirmation of a job transition from the usual media or twitter sources.

.. Texas Tech was a Southwest Conference member when they won their championship.
.. 2-0 Baylor is correct.
.. 1-0 Texas A&M when they were a BIG 12 conference member.
.. 0-1 Oklahoma defeated by UConn.

TRANSFER

April 18, 2019

"Ohio State head coach Kevin McGuff announced that Braxtin Miller will join the program next season. Miller is an Ohio native as she led Dayton's Archbishop Alter to three consecutive state championships from 2015-17. She was a two-time All-State honoree including earning first team honors as a senior.

She then played two seasons at Oklahoma State where she averaged more than 13 points per game and earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors each season. She was also a unanimous All-Freshman Team selection in 2017-18 and was one of 10 players named to last year's preseason All-Big 12 team. Miller made 105 three-pointers in her two seasons in Stillwater which placed her in the top-10 in Oklahoma State history."
