  • Tabitha Brown leaving the program?

    “Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'

    Was she not a senior this past season?
    There's no I in team but there is an AM.

      I believe she was a senior, but received an extra year of eligibility from the NCAA. Probably wouldn’t happen with a men’s (maybe women’s?) basketball player.

    The news on Tabitha broke on November 24th (Senior Day) and was discussed a little bit on this thread starting with comment #9.1 (which I think was actually intended to respond to post #10).

    The most detail I have heard previously was watching the Yurview.com replay of the November 24th North Texas match and Shane Dennis reported that Tabitha had been granted an additional year of eligibility which, according to Shane, Lambo called it an unprecedented and unusual ruling by the NCAA and Shane also said that Tabitha will decide at a later date whether she wants to continue her volleyball career at Wichita State.

    After that we have had no news on Tabitha's status.

    That said I don't think her transferring (if this tweet is accurate) is a big surprise. Bringing her back on scholarship would have required Lambo to renege on an existing scholarship commitment although perhaps Abby Pugh transferring may have freed up a scholarship. So who knows.

      From where I was sitting this year, this is great news. It's time to let a new set of players develop.

            Very nice article and sounds like a win-win for all parties involved. Tabitha gets a year of grad school at a top-notch university close to home paid for. Lambo does not have to figure out how to deal with perhaps an issue with his scholarship limits. Rice gets a very good player. Lambo can start putting together his team of the future. Lambo and WSU come out looking like good guys (which they are) for helping Tabitha and her family get this done.

            BTW, the Shockers have done this before. Giorgia Civita was slightly over the 30% of matches played in her freshman year when she went down with a knee injury and the Shockers were also able to get her a medical waiver. Maybe where Tabitha's Mom got the idea. I think Korey Torgerson does a pretty good job in this area irrespective of how the Teddy Allen deal worked out. Maybe the difference is it's volleyball and men's basketball.

            Good luck Tabitha and thanks for helping the Shocks to some really nice achievements in your time as a Shocker.
