A former basketball standout at Meridian High, Joni Crenshaw, is being considered for promotion to associate head coach of the Louisiana Tech women's basketball team.

The Meridian native's promotion still must be approved by the Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System and won't go into effect until July 1.

Crenshaw played at Alabama after earning Mississippi's Gatorade Player of the year honors at Meridian in 1997. This is her second year as an assistant coach at Louisiana Tech.

Crenshaw says it's nice to see that people appreciate her efforts.
She says the staff works hard toward the same goals and she views herself as just one piece of the puzzle.
