Biographical Sketch

At Texas Tech University, the women's basketball team is known as the Lady Raiders. The pinnacle of their athletic tenure occurred in March and April of 1993, when the Lady Raiders won the Southwest Conference Post Basketball Tournament and the NCAA Championship. The 1993 National Championship win by the Lady Raiders was the first for Texas Tech University, the team and its coach.

The team was headed by noted basketball coach Marsha Sharp, who completed her 20th year with the university in 2002. Among her accomplishments was serving as head coach of the 1994 Olympic Festival West Team, which won a silver medal in St. Louis, and serving as head coach of the qualifying teams for the inaugural USA Basketball World Championships for Young Women in Brazil in 2002. Sharp resigned as the women’s basketball coach in 2006.
