Coastal’s Jordan captures Big South weekly award

ccuwhoops-1driveCoastal Carolina shooting guard AJ Jordan has been named the co-Big South Player of the Week along with Gardner-Webb’s Catrina Green for games played Dec. 24-Jan. 5, the league office announced Monday.

The weekly honor is the first in Jordan’s career and the second by a Chanticleer this season as Alexx Puckett picked up the award on Dec. 9. In addition to the league honor, Jordan was named the Big South Player of the Week by CollegeSportsMadness.com.

Jordan turned in the best four-game stretch of her career in leading Coastal to a 3-1 conference record. She averaged 16.3 points and 10.8 rebounds per game, while also dishing out seven assists and recording five steals. The junior started the stretch with 13 points and six rebounds as Coastal set a school record with a 30-point win at Longwood.

She then led the Chanticleers to a come-from-behind victory at Radford with a 23-point, 13-rebound double-double. The Coalfield, Tenn., native followed that performance with 19 points and 15 rebounds, including 13 on the defensive end, in a victory over High Point. She closed the four-games in eight days stretch with 10 points and a team-high nine rebounds against Liberty.

Jordan currently ranks second in the Big South with an 18.2 scoring average and is posting 19.5 points in league contests. She is the only player in the conference to have made 100-plus field goals to this point of the season and is the only guard shooting 50 percent or better from the field.

Jordan and the Chanticleers return to the hardwood on Saturday, Jan. 11 for a 1 p.m. tipoff at Campbell. Coastal next plays at home on Monday, Jan. 13 against league power Winthrop.
