MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - Junior guard Chimere Jordan (Gray, Ga.) of the Georgia College & State University women's basketball team was named GCSU Athlete of the Week for the week ending Dec. 13. This is the first such honor for both Jordan and the Bobcat women's basketball team this season.
Jordan narrowly missed her second-straight 20-point game this season, netting a game-high 19 in a statement-making 72-59 non-conference win at USC Aiken. The junior hit five threes in the effort, pulling down three boards as well.
The Bobcats are back in action Tuesday, Dec. 29 in day one of the Craig Massee Real Estate Classic, hosting Lincoln Memorial University at 7 p.m.
