Sheryl Swoopes has signed with the NWBL’s Lubbock Hawks, effective Monday, Feb. 14th, 2005. Currently a player for the WNBA’s Houston Comets, Swoopes will be joining the Hawks on Thursday, Feb. 24, 2005, for the game in Dallas against the Dallas Fury.

Swoopes will keep jersey number 22, as Kesha Watson has recently decided to pursue other opportunities overseas.
