UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, Va. – The University of Richmond women’s basketball team has announced two more additions to the 2017 signing class, adding Tonysha Curry and Autumn Truesdale to an already talented incoming freshman class. The Spider signing class now boasts four talented players when adding in Kailyn Fee and Alex Parson, both of which were announced in the fall.

Tonysha Curry – Louisville, Kentucky

A 5-foot-10 guard, Curry averaged 11.3 points and 9.8 rebounds last season as the Manual Crimsons finished 23-8, falling to Sacred Heart in the Seventh Region final. Curry was named the Seventh Region Player of the Year by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches, a Miss Kentucky Basketball Finalist and was a first-team All-Seventh Region selection by the Courier-Journal. She averaged 9.0 points, 8.4 rebounds as a junior and 12.3 points and 6.9 rebounds as a sophomore at Manual.

Autumn Truesdale – New York, New York
Averaged 10.1 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.0 steals during her career at The Berkshire School where she recorded 26 double doubles. Her team advanced to the finals of the Class B Championship in 2017 where she tallied 13 points and 11 rebounds. Earned such accolades as 2016 Children’s Aid Society Milbank Elite Athlete Award, MVP Columbia Pre Tip Off Tournament 2012, All-Star Team High School Division Rose Classic (Fall 2012 & 2013 and Spring 2012), League MVP Junior Division Rose Classic Spring 2012, Nike Swoosh League 14u MVP 2012, Sportsmanship Award Junior Division Rose Class Fall 2011, Police Officer David Willis Memorial Tournament MVP 2011, Bonner Young Ladies MVP 2010.

The program will be looking to replace two all-time greats in Janelle Hubbard and Lauren Tolson following careers that saw both eclipse the 1,000-point plateau. Hubbard moved all the way up to fifth on the all-time scoring list before calling it a career. The group will join one of the more prolific freshmen, now rising sophomore classes the program has seen in recent memory highlighted by Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team member Jaide Hinds-Clarke.
