Loss of Battle, Baker will leave gap for Lady Raiders
There are small marks, call them indentations, on the court next to Texas Tech’s bench.
Each time Texas Tech women’s basketball coach Candi Whitaker yelled at her team to hustle, every time she complained about a call and every time she would get frustrated with another loss, she stomped her right heel into the floor.
That part of the floor took a lot of beatings.
But over the last two seasons, so did the Lady Raiders.
Whitaker is a combined 21-40 at Texas Tech.
It’s been hard for her to watch, coach and deal with.
