Crenshaw promotion shows moxie

Lady Techsters coach Chris Long made the right move on Monday by naming Joni Crenshaw his associate head coach. She's a person who area basketball fans will see at the helm of Arkansas, Kentucky, Kansas or some other major college basketball school at some point in the near future.

Techsters fans love Crenshaw, the players love her, the other coaches love her and apparently high profile recruits love her.

When she walks into a room, she's a commanding presence. Part of that is due to her 6-foot-2 height, part to her beauty, but mostly it's due to an air that lets you know she's not just another assistant basketball coach. Like a baseball player with great vision, or a football player with great speed, that's something that can't be taught.

Long and the Techsters family want to hold onto Crenshaw for as long as they can, which makes Monday's announcement one with a lot of foresight.
