McCurty’s future with IU women’s team in doubt

Quaneisha McCurty’s future with the Indiana women’s basketball team appears to be in doubt.

All-Star Girls Report’s Bret McCormick tweeted Sunday that McCurty, a sophomore center, is transferring to Florida State. The news comes a week after first-year Indiana coach Curt Miller announced that McCurty was suspended indefinitely.

McCurty also indicated on Twitter Sunday evening that she was Tallahassee-bound, tweeting: “Here I come Sunshine State #Seminole.”

An Indiana spokesman declined to comment.

The Dalton, Ga. native is averaging 1.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in limited action this season. Miller said earlier this year that McCurty would be the Hoosiers’ X-factor this season, but she was never able to secure a valuable role in the team’s rotation. McCurty averaged only 6.5 minutes in the 11 games she played, with her finest outing of the year coming in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge when she tied a career high with six blocks against Clemson.

When McCurty was signed to come to IU by coach Jack, I was very excited to get a 6’6″ center thinking she would really become an asset to our team. After seeing her play, last year and again this year, I wondered why she was recruited to begin with? Other than being 6’6″ tall, she had very little basketball skills. I am sure at her height, she may have dominated in high school but, it became very apparent that in college she was a very tall girl that played very small. She has basically no post up game and is very limited fundamentally. Her only strength was her ability to block shots on occasion. At least her leaving will give some of the other post players more time on the floor. I wish her success at Florida St. McCurty is an example of the type of recruiting coach Jack maintained while at IU. Her penchant of recruiting athletic players with very limited basketball skills was her undoing along with her inability of recruiting the state of Indiana. Thank God we now have a real coach who can recruit and “coach them up!” Go Hoosiers.

Watched 2012 Offense-Defense All Star Bowl which was played earlier but televised last night from Houston. It is a HS bowl game for 2013 talent. IU commits Rashard Fant and David Kenney played for the American squad along with PUke commit QB Danny Etling.
Kenney’s reputation is well known and he enlarged it last night by full speed engagement of his hi-octane motor. He had a solo sack, repeated pressures, 1 roughing the passer which was a 50-50 call. He played DE from both positions and was trouble for every OT he faced. His speed off the edge was the best of the DE group and most of all consistent every snap. He also knows how to play the run.

Fant is listed at 5’10″-165 is slight built(must have bricks in his pants where pads belong to list at 165)but I’d give near anything to see a 55 yd. match race between he, Shane Wynn, Nick Stoner and IU 2013 WR commit Anthony Young. He is lightning with moves. On KO and PR he attains yardage easily and can go the route at anytime. Had sticky had hands on every reception and is tougher than his size would portend.

These 2 guys make the team speed needle visibly move.

Get out of the way, Puke is going to have another real QB instead of the strawmen they have platooned the last 3 seasons. Etling is the real deal and the 1st commit Hazell called to firm up when he got the HC job.

I’m sad to see McCurty go but I wish her the very best. So McCurty is the 3rd player to leave the team this year. I wonder who’s next?

The positive side is it makes room for another good Miller recruit.

Positive for who “Miller” or the kid? You get rid of “athletes” because you dont have scholarships left to give to another recruit? I’m very,very disappointed in IU WBB and coaches. On top of all this, the ones that are leaving are all africian americans. There is more to this….

This decision by both sides had nothing to do with scholarships available.
