Colorado women’s basketball coach JR Payne announced the signing of Jaimie Curtis on Thursday. Curtis joins the Buffs as a transfer from Sierra College and is a native of Rocklin, Calif.. She is a 6-foot-7 post player and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
“We are thrilled to have Jaimie joining our Buff family,” Payne said. “Jaimie adds a new dimension to our team in that she has a rare combination of size and mobility. We are excited to add Jaimie’s length, experience and tenacity to our frontcourt next season. Jaimie is a very good student who is excited to make an impact on the court, in the classroom and in the Boulder community.”
Curtis led Sierra College, one of the top two-year programs in the state of California, to Big 8 Conference championships as a freshman and sophomore. In 29 games in 2016-17, she averaged 6.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.1 blocked shots as a reserve for the Wolverines. She also shot 57 percent from the floor as the team finished 26-4 overall and ranked No. 3 in the state.
