Guard Jordan Ivy-Curry is returning to his former team, the UTSA Roadrunners, after a one-year run with Pacific. The announcement comes after he withdrew from the 2023 NBA Draft to continue his education.
Ivy-Curry said he returned to UTSA due to personal issues that made him want to move back home.
“Returning to UTSA was the best thing for my overall wellbeing,” he said. “I’m glad Coach [Steve] Henson gave me the opportunity.”
Ivy-Curry hopes to pick up where he left off at UTSA and lead his team to victory during the two years of eligibility he has left.
The 6-foot-2-inch, 180-pound guard transferred to University of the Pacific in March 2022 to improve his skills as a playmaker.
“My main goal there was to grow, win and get better,” he said. “My former teammates will be missed. All the hard work and time together turned us into brothers.”
In 2022-23, Ivy-Curry appeared in 33 games and started in seven. He averaged 10.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. He netted a season-high 25 points in a 99-94 win over San Diego on Feb. 11.
In his two seasons with UTSA, Ivy-Curry notched 10.2 points and 2.6 rebounds per contest. As a sophomore he registered more than 20 points four times, including a career-high 27 points against Denver on Nov. 16.
The guard was a high-school standout as well. Over the course of his La Marque High School career, he scored more than 2,000 points.
He was named the District 24-4A Most Valuable Player and helped lead the team to a 32-7 record in 2019-20. As a senior, he averaged 31.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 4.8 steals per game. The guard score 50 points in a game three times during this final campaign.
After college, Ivy-Curry plans on going pro for a few years and eventually coaching.
