Kristy Curry Signs Class
Alabama women's basketball just finished its best SEC season in 17 years, finishing 8-8. Head coach Kristy Curry followed that up by pulling in five women for her 2020 recruiting class. Curry signed two players in the early signing period in November and followed that up by securing a transfer and two junior college players in the spring period.
Curry signed ESPN Top-100 player Myra Gordon out of Fort Worth, Texas in November. She is a 6-foot guard who won district MVP and named All-state by two different organizations. She has scored over 2,000 points in her high school career and holds the scoring record for her school with 53 points in a game.
Keyara Jones signed in November as a JUCO from Jones College in Mississippi. Jones is a 5-foot-7 guard who helped her team to a 28-3 record. She led her team in scoring, averaging 15.7 points per game and was selected to play in the NJCAA All-Star game. As a high schooler, Jones led her team to the 2016 Mississippi State Campionship.
Taylor Sutton decided to transfer to Alabama from Middle Tennessee State University. She played two seasons for the Blue Raiders and was the C-USA Freshman of the year in 2018-19. Sutton is a 5-foot-4 guard who averaged 12.6 points per game this past season at MTSU. She will sit out in 2020 and be eligible to compete for the Tide in 2021. Read more about her here.
Curry found Ruth Koang out of South Plains Community College in Levelland, Texas. Koang is a 6-foot-5 center and she averaged 10.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game. She was named All-Conference for the Western Junior College Athletic Conference and her team went 32-1 this past season.
Alana Busby-Dunphy joins the Crimson Tide out of Dodge City Community College in Dodge City, Kansas. She is a 6-foot-3 center who averaged 4.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game last season. Busby-Dunphy will have three seasons of eligibility left to play at the Capstone.
Curry brings in three guards and two centers to supplement the Crimson Tide roster. The addition of this recruiting class will help Curry build off the success of the 2019-20 season. Curry's team was poised to receive its first NCAA Tournament bid in the coach's tenure.
