Candace Whitaker makes her way back to United Spirit Arena, this time as Missouri-Kansas City's head coach. Whitaker's Kangaroos will take on No. 19 Texas Tech at 8 p.m. in the World Vision Basketball Invitational.
The coaching tree of legendary women’s basketball figurehead Marsha Sharp is constantly growing, spreading out across the country.
Luckily, technology helps Sharp keep track of the branches.
The former Texas Tech women’s basketball coach uses her iPad to monitor games being coached by her former players and assistants.
“I can put them in my favorites, and whenever their games are going on, I can follow along,” Sharp said. “A lot of times I will do that to keep in touch and stay engaged.”
Still, nothing beats face-to-face interaction with a former pupil.
