Thirteen years ago, Marsha Sharp led Texas Tech to the NCAA title. Three years ago, she was inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. Now, Sharp will soon be stepping down as Tech's head coach.

Before she goes, however, here's a look at Sharp's successful 24-year run as the Lady Raiders' head coach.
