Shereka Wright is in her seventh year as an assistant coach on Kristy Curry's staff after being a standout player for Curry at Purdue University from 2000-04.

Wright's main responsibilities at Texas Tech include academics, equipment, recruiting, working with the perimeter players and scouting the opponents.

This is Wright's first stint as an assistant coach. Prior to coaching, Wright spent two years in the WNBA. She missed the 2006 WNBA season after suffering a torn achilles tendon during training camp. In her two seasons on the court, she averaged 3.1 points and 1.6 rebounds in 49 games.

Before playing in the WNBA, Wright had a stellar four-year career at Purdue. She became just the third player in Purdue history to be named first team All-Big Ten three times (2002-04). She was also honorable mention Kodak All-America and a finalist for the Naismith Award, the Wooden Award and the Wade Trophy, while being named to the Wooden Award team during her final campaign. Wright was also named the Most Valuable Player of the 2004 Big Ten Tournament.

As a senior, Wright averaged 20.1 points and 6.1 rebounds. In 2001 as a freshman, she was named to the NCAA Final Four All-Tournament team. During her four years as a Boilermaker, her teams won two Big Ten regular-season titles (2001, 2002) and two Big Ten Tournament crowns (2003, 2004), while appearing in four NCAA Tournaments, including the Final Four and national championship game in 2001, the Elite Eight in 2003 and the Sweet 16 in 2004.

The Copperas Cove, Texas, native was the USA Today, Gatorade and WBCA Player of the Year as a senior at Copperas Cove High School in 2000. She finished her high school career with 3,269 points.

Wright graduated from Purdue in 2004 with a degree in health and fitness. She was inducted into the Texas High School Basketball Hall of Fame in May 2011.
