Battle ranks 60th on ESPN's HoopGurlz Top 100
Texas Tech women’s basketball coach Kristy Curry nabbed her first and likely final 2011 commitment Wednesday night with the addition of Amber Battle, a junior guard from Albuquerque, N.M.
Battle is a 5-foot-9 defensive specialist who is ranked No. 60 on ESPN’s HoopGurlz Top 100, and is one of the highest-ranked recruits Curry has brought to Tech as she enters her fifth season at the helm of the program.
As a junior, Battle averaged 16 points per game at Cibola High School and was just shy of a double-double at 9.2 rebounds. Battle also led the metro area in assists per game.
