  • All Pac-12
  • Selected as Pac-12 All Defense

Jaylyn Sherrod led the CU women’s basketball team to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 20 seasons in 2023 while being named All Pac-12 and All Defense selection. After 4 years in Boulder, Sherrod returned for her 5th and final season wasting no time in the 2023/2024 season opener scoring 19 points with 6 assist to help the Buffs beat No. 1 LSU in December. Academically, her time during the extra year is being used to add a second master’s degree, all well making the 2023 Pac-12 Winter Academic Honor Roll and the CSC Academic All-District. Sherrod is one of only five players in CU history with at least 1,000 points, 450 assists and 200 steals. Jaylyn Sherrod’s excellence on and off the court in 2023 is why she is our winner in college basketball.
