Texas Tech Women’s Basketball Player Shauntal Nobles Out Indefinitely
A Texas Tech women’s basketball player is out indefinitely while battling an illness.
Junior forward Shauntal Nobles received a diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome, and will be off the court indefinitely.
Nobles will undergo aggressive treatments for the next few weeks, but she is expected to make a full recovery, according to a press release from Tech.
Guillain-Barré syndrome is a disorder that affects the peripheral nervous system, and can cause paralysis.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Shauntal and her family during this time,” said Tech head coach Kristy Curry. “We certainly are going to be here with her every step of the way while she undergoes treatment and are hopeful that she will be able to return to the team when she is ready.”
