Techsters pipeline

Trinity Valley Community College continues to be a pipeline for Lady Techsters basketball talent. With Tuesday's signing of Lady Cards' forward Jokierra Sneed, the Techsters now have inked seven TVCC players and a coach over the past few years.

Sneed joins Betty Lennox, Kenya Bibbs, Essence Perry, Lakiste Barkus, Tiffany Thompson, along with early spring signee Sierra Nixon, as former TVCC players choosing to wear the red and blue. Former head coach Kurt Budke was the head coach at Trinity Valley before joining the Techsters as an assistant coach under Leon Barmore.

Lennox was by far the best of that bunch, although Perry was a serviceable point guard and Barkus had her moments. With Sneed in the fold, Techsters coach Chris Long will have at least 14 players on his bench this fall, including seven players 6-foot-1 or taller.

That's gotta give Techsters fans some optimism heading into the fall.
