Truitt to transfer to USI

The University of Southern Indiana women’s basketball team announced the transfer of junior guard Jamie Truitt from Western Kentucky University. Truitt will have two years of eligibility beginning with the 2003-04 season.

Truitt appeared in 53 games for the Lady Toppers, averaging 5.6 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. Known as a long-range threat, Truitt knocked down 62 three-pointers in two seasons at WKU

She was WKU’s top freshman in 2000-01, averaging 7.6 points and connecting on 43 three-point fields. Her season-high 19 points came in WKU’s first round Women’s NIT victory over the University of Mississippi. Truitt averaged 5.8 points as a sophomore.

A native of Owensboro, Kentucky, Truitt was a four-year starter and letterwinner at Apollo High School. She was a three-time Third Region Player of the Year along with being named All-State and All-District. Truitt also was a USA Today honorable mention All-America choice and averaged 22.2 points per game as a senior.

“We are very excited to have Jamie join our program,” said USI head coach Rick Stein. “Jamie is obviously a great shooter, but her versatility as a ball handler, passer and defender made her a Miss basketball candidate and Kentucky All-Star in 2000. We look forward to her getting on the practice floor second semester.”

The Screaming Eagles will resume action Saturday, December 28, against Northwood University in the first day of the GLVC/GLIAC Challenge at the Physical Activities Center. Game time is 4 p.m.
