In 2010 the team won the regular season and conference tournament to advance to the 2010 NCAA Tournament. The Lady Cardinals made their first ever appearance in the preseason WNIT in the fall of 2010. In the 2011 season, coach Tidwell's Lady Cardinals received their first top 100 RPI ranking (RPI #80) since the figures were made public in the 2005 season. The 2010-2011 squad finished with a record of 25-8 and made an appearance in the 2011 post season WNIT.

Coach Tidwell resigned his position in 2013 to take a position at University of Texas-Pan American as head women's basketball coach.
