Kristy Curry has made another move in women’s basketball.
The former Louisiana Tech University assistant coach who has served for the past seven years at the helm of the Texas Tech University program has been chosen as the new head coach at the University of Alabama.
Curry guided the Lady Raiders to a 21-11 mark this past season which ended in a first-round loss to South Florida in the NCAA tournament.
Over the past decade, Louisiana Tech and Fresno State have developed an intense rivalry on the basketball court, as the Lady Techsters and Bulldogs have dominated the Western Athletic Conference and played some memorable games in the women’s sport.
The rivalry will continue on the Thomas Assembly Center floor Saturday at 7 p.m., when the Lady Techsters host the Bulldogs in the NCAA’s 5th annual “Pack the House” Challenge.
