(Tulsa-AP) -- Former Illinois stand-out Allison Curtin is transferring to play basketball at the University of Tulsa.

Curtin is following her coach, Kathy McConnell-Miller, who left Illinois to come to Tulsa.

Curtin is a two-time all-Big Ten First Team performer. She led the Illini to two N-C-double-A Tournament berths. The five-foot, 11-inch guard led Illinois in scoring the past two seasons.

Curtin will sit out the 2001 and 2002 season and have one year of eligibility in 2002 and 2003.
