    Keitha Adams, Wichita State Agree to 2-Year Extension

    Wichita State athletic director Darron Boatright announced Wednesday morning that women's basketball head coach Keitha Adamshas agreed to a two-year contract extension through 2024.

    Adams is 26-35 in her first two seasons at Wichita State, including a 14-18 mark in American Athletic Conference play. This past season Adams had to replace eight seniors from the 2017-18 season to field the fifth youngest team in the country.

    "We are committed to Coach Adams and her continued leadership of our women's basketball program," Boatright said. "Her passion and excitement for Wichita State is contagious. We look forward to helping make her vision for this program a reality."

    "I'm extremely honored to be the head women's basketball coach at Wichita State," Adams said. "I appreciate the support and commitment from the administration as we continue to work hard to build this program."

    Probably a good move by WSU. I agree that HCKA and her staff have shown great passion for the program and seem to have a great work ethic. But this is a turn around that will require some time. HCKA seems like an extremely likable person but I think she can be tough with her team when she needs to be.

    Achieving success is step one. Maintaining a consistently successful program is the next and perhaps more difficult step. Jody Adams had things going a bit for a 5-year stretch but that imploded pretty quickly at the end of her tenure. I wish HCKA the best of luck.

    Hopefully, HCKA can get her classes balanced out better over time or achieving consistent success will be difficult. It will be very interesting to see what kind of improvement the Shockers will make next year with still a very young and relatively inexperienced team as no player on next year's roster has more than 1 year of D-1 experience.
