'16 Curtis grabs Roy Williams honors #UnderTheRadar

Just like Claudia Curtis is elevating on her shot, the same is happening with her game and after the junior wing player captured Offensive MVP honors in the West Oso Roy Williams Holiday Classic, things are simply coming together for not only her but her Flour Bluff team. After the score was tied at 32 against West Oso, the Hornets closed the game out with an 11-4 run avenging not only last season’s title game against West Oso but an earlier loss to the Bears as well. Curtis who is averaging a double-double this season scored 11 of her game her high 15 points in the first half however

From Corpus Christi Caller Times “Hornets guard/forward Claudia Curtis then split two Bears defenders before muscling in a jumper just inside of the free-throw line. Curtis' clutch shot gave the Bluff the lead for good and sparked the Hornets' decisive fourth-quarter run. “

Hornets coach James McMinn on Curtis "That was a big shot — she's that type of player,” "We want the ball in her hands at key moments of the game."
