Release: 05/11/2011

Tari Cummings joined the University of Arkansas women’s basketball staff in May 2011 as an assistant coach for the Razorbacks.

Cummings assists Arkansas as the team’s recruiting coordinator, works with the Razorback posts and is the team’s liaison with the academic center.  Cummings on-the-court role continues to expand as she oversees in bounds plays and situational offense.

The 2012-13 season has Cummings tasked with handling All-SEC senior Sarah Watkins as well as developing post players Quistelle Williams, Jhasmine Bowen, Joey Bailey and Ana Carlota Faussiuer.

Watkins finished the year as the SEC’s Co-Sixth Player of the Year.  She ranked 13th in the SEC averaging a team-leading 12.8 ppg.  Williams ranked among the SEC leaders as well checking in at No. 11 with 7.0 rpg.  Both players reached personal milestones under the coaching of Cummings with Watkins scoring more that 1,000 career points and grabbing more than 500 career boards and Williams surpassed the 500 career rebounding mark.

Arkansas’ post players, coached by Cummings, accounted for nearly 46 percent of the Razorbacks’ scoring in 2012-13.

Cummings comes to Arkansas by way of the University of Houston where she spent two seasons working with the Cougars as the team’s recruiting coordinator.

While at Houston, Cummings worked with the guards and helped the Cougars play to a perfect 16-0 mark, the conference title and an NCAA Tournament appearance.  In addition she coached and mentored three players who are currently playing in the professional ranks.

Cummings came to Houston after two seasons at the University of Cincinnati where she served in the same capacity.  Cummings worked with the Bearcat post players and served as the academic liaison and recruiting coordinator.

Prior to her time at UC, Cummings spent four seasons at Arkansas-Fort Smith under long-time head coach Louis Whorton, where she helped the Lions to three NJCAA National Tournament appearances, including a pair of final fours and a consolation championship. She coached and mentored three NJCAA All-Americans during her tenure at UA-Fort Smith while being responsible for the development of the team’s post players and serving as the recruiting coordinator.

She played her college ball at UA-Fort Smith (then Westark College), where she earned All-American honors in 1999 and helped the Lions place seventh in the NJCAA National Tournament in 1997-98. She finished with 1,262 career points, ranking third in the program’s history. She went on to play two seasons at Oklahoma State University, where she was an All-Big 12 performer in 2001-02, averaging 13.1 points per contest and leading the Cowgirls with 6.9 rebounds per game.

Cummings earned her associate of arts degree from Westark College in 1999 and received a B.S. in sociology from Oklahoma State in 2003. She is a native of Pocola, Okla., and has a daughter, Tiya.

She was inducted into the UA-Fort Smith (Westark College) Hall of Fame in 2013.
