IU women’s basketball adds transfer portal forward Sharnecce Currie-Jelks

The IU women’s basketball program has made a late portal addition to their 2023-24 roster.

UT-Martin transfer forward Sharnecce Currie-Jelks announced on her Instagram page she has committed to Indiana.

Currie-Jelks averaged 15.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks in 29.4 minutes per game for the Skyhawks as a freshman in 2022-23.  She shot 53.9 percent from the field, 23.8 percent from beyond the arc and 73.8 percent from the free throw line.

The 6-foot-2 Currie-Jelks was named the Ohio Valley Conference Freshman of the Year and tabbed to the All-OVC first team.  She earned a pair of OVC Player of the Week selections and set a school record with nine OVC Freshman of the Week honors.

Hailing from Jackson, Tenn., Currie-Jelks was third in points and field goal percentage in the OVC while coming in fifth in rebounding. She tallied 21 games in double figures while eclipsing 20 points or more in six contests – including a season-high 30 points against Southeast Missouri.

Currie-Jelks has three years of eligibility remaining.  She suffered two ACL tears during high school and thus came into college a bit off the radar.  You can watch her discuss that below.
