Ivy-Curry set to return to UTSA for 2023-24 season

SAN ANTONIO – Marking the third roster addition in the past week, the Roadrunners will see a familiar face back in the UTSA men's basketball lineup for the 2023-24 campaign, as head coach Steve Henson announced on Tuesday, June 7, that former Roadrunner Jordan Ivy-Curry will return for next season.

A 6-foot-2, 180-pound guard from La Marque, Texas, Ivy-Curry returns to the Roadrunners after one season at Pacific, where he played 33 games with seven starts. With the Tigers, Ivy-Curry averaged 10.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. His 50 assists were the third-most for the team. Shooting 42.2 percent from the field, he also went 86.4 percent from the free throw line. He scored in double figures in 20 games with the Tigers, highlighted by a 25-point performance against San Diego and 23 at Stanford.

"Jordan is a dynamic guard that will be a major factor for our team offensively," Henson said. "His ability to score the ball in a variety of ways will be very valuable. Our staff enjoyed coaching Jordan earlier in his college career and look forward to welcoming him back to UTSA."

He played two seasons for the Roadrunners under Henson, appearing in 47 games with 26 starts – averaging 10.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per outing as a Roadrunner. He maintained UTSA's second-best scoring average during his second season with the Roadrunners, putting up 13.9 points per game while shooting 34.7 percent from the floor. He scored in double figures 21 times in his first stint at UTSA. As a rookie in 2020-21, Ivy-Curry was named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team after playing in all 26 games and he started the final 11 games, averaging 7.2 points while shooting 40.1 percent from the field and 37.5 percent beyond the arc.

Prior to joining UTSA in the 2020-21 season, Ivy-Curry enjoyed an extremely successful high school career, scoring over 2,000 points as a four-year starter at La Marque High School. He recorded over 50 points in a game three times and exceeded 40 in five games as a senior, leading the La Marque Cougars to a 32-7 record and a district championships appearance in the 2019-20 season. For his performance, Ivy-Curry garnered District 24-4A Most Valuable Player. As a senior, he averaged 31.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 4.8 steals per game, earning 4A All-State and All-Region honors from the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches. He was also a finalist for the Guy V. Lewis Award, presented to the top player in the city of Houston, and was named to the Houston Chronicle All-Greater Houston first team.
