GC’s Jordan Named to Daktronics All-American Team
STEPHENVILLE, Texas – Senior guard Chimere Jordan (Gray, Ga.) of the Georgia College women’s basketball team was named to the Daktronics Women’s Basketball All-American Third Team as announced by the organization recently.
The only two-year player in Bobcat women’s basketball history to eclipse 1,000 points in her career, Jordan becomes just the second All-American in program history. The Daktronics All-America program is maintained by and voted on by the nation’s sports information directors.
The 5-foot-8 guard ranks second in all of Division II with 21.8 points per game. The senior pulled down 8.3 rebounds per contest as well as ranking 17th in the nation in steals with 3.1 per game.
Jordan posted double digit scoring in all 29 games this season, including 16 games with 20-plus scoring. She had double-doubles over her final three games, the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Semifinals, Finals and the first round of the NCAA Tournament. She also had three 30-point games.
The only other All-American in GC history also came from the Daktronics organization, as Marquita Driskell earned third team honors in 2007.
The women’s basketball team finished the 2010-11 season with a 22-7 overall record, while going 11-6 in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC). The Bobcats went on to win the PBC Tournament Championship and participate in the NCAA Division II National Tournament.
