As said on other thread Tech won 8 conference championships in 9 years from '92-2000 and 1 NC under Marsha Sharp and nothing since. Had 6 more declining seasons under Sharp as Mulkey and others came on scene

New coach was hired to bring em back to seasons past from oblivion

Maybe this is start in that direction

TRANSFER OUT
Destiny Littleton

"South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley confirmed that the plan is to apply for a NCAA waiver to make Destiny Littleton immediately eligible for South Carolina. Staley had previously said she wanted to add a transfer who could play right away. Marlon Wells, Littleton's high school coach and mentor, told The State that Littleton hoped to apply for a waiver for personal reasons. Should Littleton's waiver be granted, South Carolina would have 12 available players for this upcoming season, including 11 on scholarship.

"I don't want to jinx myself, but yeah, we need her eligible," Staley said.

PARTIAL NON-CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

Nov 29 v Memphis Junkanoo Jam Bimini Division in Bimini, Bahamas
Nov 30 v Michigan State OR LSU (Bimini Championship OR 3rd Place game)
Dec 21 @ Oregon

Kansas State head coach Jeff Mittie said
"Every year our non-conference schedule is designed to challenge our team and position us to be in the NCAA Tournament field of 64. Adding Oregon for a two-game series helps us accomplish this by adding a team that is a preseason number one in a poll already and coming off a Final Four appearance."

I'd think that is more than a bit unsettling for Carey as well as the players.

2019 SIGNED COMMIT

Esmery Martinez 6-1 PF. She is in the 2019 recruiting class.
16 Nov 2018 Signed a NLI with Mississippi State
04 Jun 2019 Posted on her personal twitter account "I would like to thank Mississippi State University and the coaching staff for recruiting me. However, after much thought and discussion with my family, i have decided to ask for my release and re-open my recruitment."

Currently, a formal press release has not been issued on their University of Texas WBB website. According to a post on the Texas fan forum, "Martinez was released from her NLI prior to enrolling in school. So, she's not a transfer; she is technically coming straight from high school."

Martinez had a knee injury during her senior year in high school.

This entire development ought to make the Trustees a bit unsettled.

Might be a dynamite move but little margin for error.
