Sheryl Swoopes is back at Texas Tech, this time as a television announcer.

Texas Tech spokesman Travis Cram said Thursday that the 41-year-old Swoopes moved back to the Lubbock area earlier this year. Swoopes, who also won three Olympic gold medals and the first four WNBA titles with the Houston Comets, scored a record 47 points to lead Texas Tech past Ohio State in the 1993 title game. She played her 12th season in the WNBA with the Tulsa Shock in 2011.
