Techsters forward leaves team
Troubled Lady Techsters forward Sierra Nixon has left the team ... this time for good. Her name has been removed from the Louisiana Tech Web site under the Techsters' roster.
The 6-foot-3 former Trinity Valley star joined the Techsters last season with a lot of promise, along with a questionable past. She left Trinity after just one season after allegedly being involved in an on-campus incident along with another student.
Techsters coach Chris Long suspended the lanky shooter earlier this season for several games after an undisclosed incident. Nixon finally made it back on the squad a few of games ago but has seen just limited action. She she played four minutes against Idaho on Wednesday and didn't see the court against Boise State on Saturday. Nixon played in 8 of 16 games this season averaging 2.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 8.1 minutes.
