Former Kansas State standout Kendra Wecker now is a member of Oklahoma’s women’s basketball staff.

Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale said Thursday Wecker will be the Sooners’ graduate assistant coach.

Wecker is from Marysville. She earned first-team All-Big 12 Conference honors three times as a player and was the Big 12 player of the year and a first-team All-America selection as a senior in 2005. She holds Kansas State career records for scoring and rebounding.

She later played for the San Antonio Silver Stars and Washington Mystics of the WNBA. She was waived by Washington on Aug. 12.

Coale says Wecker has a broad base of basketball intelligence and a strong work ethic.
