Former University of Colorado forward Jamee Swan will continue her basketball career overseas after she signed a professional contract to play in Luxembourg.

Swan, a 6-2 forward from Marana, Ariz., will be playing for Dudelange and is scheduled to join her new team later this summer.

"I'm excited and really looking forward to the opportunity to play in Europe," said Swan. "It's going to be a great experience living in a different country and having a chance to experience the culture while seeing different parts of the world."

Swan finished her collegiate career as one of Colorado's most impressive post players. Swan ranks third all-time in blocks (176), seventh in rebounds (772), tied for 11th in double-doubles (14), 17th in field goals (483) and 19th in scoring (1,245).

Swan became the 28th player in Colorado history to register 1,000 points in her final year at CU and is only the eighth player in program history to finish her career with more than 1,200 points and 700 rebounds.

Swan, who is set to graduate next week with a degree in communication, returned to the United States after touring China with the NetScouts Basketball USA in the Four Nations international basketball tournament earlier this month. She and the team played nine games in 14 days in three cities against the national teams of China, New Zealand and Poland.


In those nine contests, Swan averaged 10.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals and made four blocks. She also registered one double-double, which came in the final game as she helped the USA team finish undefeated with a 9-0 record. Swan was named the Most Valuable Player of the Yuqing portion of the tour, after averaging 10.0 points and 8.0 rebounds for the three games against Poland, New Zealand and China.
