Jacques Curtis Named DII Bulletin National Coach of the Year
BEAVERTON, Ore. — Shaw University head coach Jacques Curtis has been named the 2012 Schelde North America/Women's Division II Bulletin Coach of the Year, the publication announced Monday in its April issue.
Curtis led his Lady Bears to a 29-6 overall record, the 2012 Division II national championship, the CIAA title and a 15-game win streak to close out the season.
"Jacques did a great job with his team this season and had his players playing at the highest level. He is most deserving of this honor," said Women's Division II Bulletin editor and publisher Gary Rubin. "Along with Schelde North America, we are pleased to recognize him for his achievement and hard work."
Women's Division II Bulletin has named a Coach of the Year every season since 1993-94. Curtis is the first CIAA coach to win the award.
"Winning a national title takes an outstanding effort from the first day of practice to the final buzzer in March," said Jim Peterson, president of Schelde North America, a leading basketball goal and equipment manufacturer. "Schelde North America is honored to partner with Women's Division II Bulletin to recognize Jacques Curtis and all the coaches in Division II college basketball."
