No Britney Griner.
No problem.
When the All-American center ended her honor-filled career at Baylor University last year, the Lady Bears and Head Coach Kim Mulkey figured to struggle.

Far from it, in fact.
Mulkey, one of the legendary players (member of two national title-winning teams, first-ever Naismith Small Player of the Year) out of Louisiana Tech University, has the Lady Bears heading to yet another NCAA “Big Dance.”

Tips for the week of testing

End-of-the-year testing is approaching fast and with all the stress testing brings, an added stress this year for teachers and students alike, has been the implementation of Common Core — a set of standards that are purposefully more rigorous in order to ensure students are more “career and college-ready.”
But as of Monday, Louisiana legislators have decided Louisiana high school will opt out of Common Core testing for 2015-16, which should make the weight of preparing for end-of-year testing a little lighter on educators.
