Welcome to the first edition of the WBB Watch Guide, where I'll be breaking down the upcoming week of women's college basketball games.
Texas State was bombarded by news with coaching controversy that culminated in the sudden resignation of Danny Kaspar. But by all accounts, Terrence Johnson is a capable interim option who could prove to be ready for the full-time job.
Senior guard Avionne Alexander expects a lot out of the Bobcats in the 2020-21 season. But for Texas State to take a step forward, the rest of the players have to expect it out of themselves too.
After back-to-back 20-win seasons, the UTA Lady Mavericks had to quickly shift course in August to bring in Vanderbilt assistant Shereka Wright to take over a program ready to continue rolling after Krista Gerlich left for Texas Tech.
The Mavericks suffered several agonizing losses a year ago dropping seven games by six points or less, including a one-point loss in the opening round of the Sun Belt Tournament. The Mavs will be laser-focused on closing that gap this year.
Tuesday evening, Texas State announced that MBB head coach Danny Kaspar had resigned effective immediately. Assistant coach Terrence Johnson will serve as head coach for the 2020-21 season.
First reported by The Ball Out, Texas Tech will hire UT-Arlington head coach and former national championship winning player Krista Gerlich as its next WBB head coach. The appointment comes following the firing of Marlene Stollings after allegations of player abuse and mistreatment.

It’s fitting that this stretch of success for Texas State men's basketball has happened while the program has a player who’s the perfect poster child for its style of play in Nijal Pearson.
