Former Louisville commit picks IU women

Quaneisha McCurty, a 6-foot-6 center who had previously verbaled to Louisville, has committed to join the Indiana women’s basketball team according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press. She becomes the Hoosiers’ fifth signee/commit for the class of 2011.

McCurty led her Dalton squad to the Georgia AAA state championship game this season, averaging 14 points, 12 rebounds and nearly five blocks per game. She posted a triple double in the state quarterfinals with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10 blocks. It was her first season at the school after transferring from Northwest Whitfield in Dalton.

She was named the Best of Preps North Georgia player of the year and was also an all-state selection by the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association.

McCurty did not sign with Louisville during the fall signing period and eventually had a falling out. According to the Times Free Press, IU coach Felisha Legette-Jack had previously recruited her and McCurty put the Hoosiers back in the picture.

And for what it’s worth, the Indiana women’s basketball program will host its annual banquet on April 18 at 7 p.m. at the Henke Hall of Champions in Memorial Stadium. Fans are welcome to the join the Hoosiers for this special event. Cost is $40 per person, which covers entry to the event and dinner. To purchase a seat or for more information, call Julie Force at (812)855-3013.

  1. This is a nice pick up for Coach Jack. Can’t wait till next season. Go Lady Hoosiers!!

  2. Well, according to my count, that’s oversigning by one…so has someone left?? de-committed???

    Definitely a need….a 6’6 post…sounds athletic…

  3. Sounds like a nice pickup for Coach FLJ! BUT, why did she and Louisville have a falling out?! What’s the story behind that?

  4. Steve,
    IU only lost four seniors, but the Hoosiers also lost Lindsey Enterline to volleyball this year. The year before they lost freshman Sasha Bernard to transfer mid-season and Ashlee Mells after the season, so Indiana actually has another open spot. And Coach Jack said on her radio show at the end of the season she was aiming for a six-woman recruiting class.

  5. Mike W,
    Read the first link posted above for info on the “falling out.” I didn’t want to delve into that, since I haven’t talked to the parties involved. It just sounds like they agreed to disagree.

  6. Well, if there’s one more….let’s get the girl who played in the MCD’s AA game that re opened her recruitment….can’t remember her name, but she de committed from Virginia
