Reese Videos

Jen Reese compliments a solid Colorado front line with her ability to play physical down low and knock down the outside shot. She has a nice soft touch on her stroke and has displayed range out towards the 3-point arc. Reese proved to be a clutch player in many pressure situations for the Buffaloes during her successful career and will be out to finish off her Colorado career in style.

Career: Reese should hit a pair of significant CU milestones in her senior season. She enters the season needing 213 points to join the Buffaloes’ 1,000-point club, a figure well below her season outputs the last two years. There are 25 members of Colorado’s 1,000 point club and Reese is the closest of three current Buffs that have a chance to reach that mark this season. She is just 36 rebounds away from 500, and 57 from cracking CU’s career top 20.

2013-14 (Junior): Received honorable mention to the All-Pac-12 Conference team as voted on by league coaches despite missing the final seven games of the season with a broken bone in her shoulder. Reese was second on the team in scoring at an even 12.0 points of game, just being edged out by teammate Arielle Roberson for the season lead by .03. She was also second on the team in rebounding (5.8 rpg), free-throw percentage (.744) and field-goal accuracy (.483).† After trading off starting and bench roles during the nonconference schedule, she settled into a starting position during the Pac-12 slate, starting in her final 13 games. Reese scored in double-digits in 17 of 27 contests and logged a pair of double-doubles. Her first double-dip of the season included 14 points and a career-high-matching 14 rebounds in a 69-62 loss at No. 7 ranked Louisville (12/21). The second came in her home state as she scored 18 points and pulled down 13 rebounds in an 81-75 win at Oregon (2/10).† Reese had a memorable weekend in the home series with the Arizona schools. She averaged 22 points and 7.5 rebounds on 55 percent from the field and 91 percent from the free throw line in the games against Arizona (1/24) and Arizona State (1/26). She matched her career-best scoring output with 22 points in each game and set career highs for field goals (9), field-goal attempts (18) and minutes played (36) against the Sun Devils. Earlier in the season she was named to the Omni Classic All-Tournament Team after averaging 14.5 points and 7.0 rebounds while hitting 69 percent from the field (11-of-16) in wins over South Alabama (11/29) and Rice (11/30). On the Pac-12 leaderboard, Reese ranked sixth in field-goal percentage, eighth in free-throw percentage and 21st in scoring. She also extended her shot beyond 3-point range, hitting eight of career 11 3-pointers during her junior campaign. Reese shot 50 percent or better in more than half her games (14) and a blistering 60 percent or higher in 12 of those contests.

2012-13 (Sophomore): Reese made a successful return from a freshman year eye injury, playing in all 32 games. One of the top bench players in the league, she earned honorable mention to the coach’s All-Pac-12 team. She was third on the team in scoring (8.4 ppg) and rebounding (4.9 rpg) while hitting 42.5 percent from the field and a team-best 80.6 percent from the foul line. She was especially sharp from the foul line during conference play, sinking 85.3 percent (29-of-34) including a string of 17 straight. Reese scored a career-high 22 points in the comeback win at Arizona State (1/18), where the Buffaloes trailed by as much as 12 in the second half before claiming a 71-63 win. Against the Sun Devils she was 7-of-10 from the floor and recorded a personal and team season-best 8-for-8 from the free-throw stripe. She was especially sharp in the desert that weekend, netting 15 points and six rebounds against Arizona (1/20), tying a career best with seven field-goals made in each contest. She narrowly missed her second career double-double with 14 points and a season-high nine rebounds in the Omni Hotels championship game win over San Diego State (11/24). Her biggest single rebound however came in the final seconds of CU’s 70-66 upset over No. 8/8 Louisville (12/14). With Colorado up by two and 11 seconds remaining, Brittany Wilson missed a pair of free throws, but on the second one Reese grabbed the offensive rebound and scored on the put-back to preserve the final margin. On the season she scored in double digits 14 times and led the team in scoring on four occasions. Reese made her only start of the season, for an injured Rachel Hargis, in the NCAA Tournament game against Kansas (3/23).

2011-12 (Freshman): Reese ranked second on the team in rebounding (6.0 rpg) and fourth in scoring (7.8 ppg) as a first year Buffalo. She led all Pac-12 freshmen in rebounding by average and earned honorable mention to the Pac-12 All-Freshman team voted on by league coaches. Reese played in 25 games and moved into the starting lineup for nine straight before suffering a broken orbital bone underneath her left eye while attempting to take a charge in the opening minutes of the game at No. 2 Stanford (2/23). She had come into her own, leading Colorado in rebounding (or sharing the lead) in six of the last nine games prior to her injury. Reese grabbed a career-best 14 rebounds against UCLA (1/29), the third highest total by a CU player this season. She made her first career start at Arizona, responding with 12 points and a team-high seven rebounds. Logged her first career double-double with 12 points, on 6-of-7 shooting, and 12 rebounds in the win at Washington State (1/7). She had 11 games with seven or more rebounds, including four in double-digits. Reese was named to the UTSA Holiday Classic All-Tournament Team, averaging 12.5 points over the two games while shooting 66.7 percent (10-of-15). She had a career-high 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting -- including her lone 3-pointer made-- in the win over Creighton (12/21). She made her collegiate debut against Northern Arizona scoring eight points on 3-of-6 from the field while grabbing three steals. Reese had 11 games of shooting 50 percent or better, finishing her season at 44.9 percent, which would have ranked among the top 12 in the Pac-12, but fell just short of the minimum number of games played to be ranked in the league leaderboard.

HIGH SCHOOL: Reese is a 2011 graduate of Clackamas (Ore.) High School. A 2011 Parade Magazine All-American, Reese averaged 25 points, 20 rebounds, six assists and five blocks as a senior guiding the Cavaliers to a 27-2 record and a second place state finish, the program’s best ever state placing. She became the first player to be named Oregon’s Gatorade Girls Basketball Player of the Year on two occasions (2010, ’11). Reese led the Three Rivers League in scoring as a senior, helping Clackamas to an undefeated (15-0) conference championship season, and a 25-game win streak along the way. She is a three-time Class 6A first team all-state selection and Three Rivers MVP and a four-time first team all-league selection. A 2011 McDonald’s All-American nominee, Reese was the MVP of the state of Oregon and the school’s Athlete of the Year. She was Oregon’s second leading scorer her junior year (21 ppg) and its third leading scorer her sophomore year (20 ppg). As a freshman, Reese earned second-team all-state honors, averaging 12 points and five rebounds. Reese’s teams compiled an overall four-year record of 70-17.  She earned a spot in the CHS Hall of Fame before graduation. Reese played club ball with Team Concept from seventh through 12th grades, traveling all over the greater west. Her team took first place in tournaments in Las Vegas, San Diego, Seattle and Memphis.

ACADEMICS: Reese is majoring in communication at Colorado.

PERSONAL: Jen “J” Reese was born on May 19, 1992, in Portland, Ore. She is the daughter of Jeff and Ashley Reese of Happy Valley, Ore. She has one younger brother David, who is a freshman offensive lineman at Montana. When she’s not playing basketball she enjoys hanging out with friends. After graduation she hopes to continue playing overseas and become a coach.
