Marsha Sharp has been the coach of the Texas Tech Lady Raiders basketball team for over twenty years, and this book traces Sharp's basketball journey from her West Texas beginnings through her twenty-third season with the Lady Raiders. A 2003 inductee into the national Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, Sharp has consistently guided her teams through numerous conference and postseason NCAA victories. The Lady Raiders have enjoyed a steady following of fan support, beginning with about 200 loyal fans when Sharp began to achieving consistent attendance of 14,000 fans per game in the 2003-2004 season. Her program has also recently been cited as the only women's program in the Big 12 Conference that is actually a revenue-producing program. This story examines the secrets of the Lady Raiders' success under Coach Sharp's careful guidance and passes along those insights to other coaches, fans, players, and leaders in any arena who would appreciate guidelines for leadership that do not compromise integrity.
