Holmes enjoys breakout season

Jordan Holmes

In the 42-year history of the Denison women's basketball program, arguably nobody had a better rookie season than Jordan Holmes.  In her debut season, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native not only etched her name in the school record book, but she also earned her way into the conference and national limelight.

Holmes' breakout season culminated when she was named North Coast Athletic Conference Newcomer of the Year and earned first-team All-NCAC honors.  The 6-foot-1 freshman led the conference in rebounds per game (14.6), blocks per game (6.07) and field-goal percentage (.619).  She finished the year with 19 double-doubles and was one of just three players in Division III to record two triple-doubles this season.  The two-time NCAC Player of the Week averaged 10.6 points, including a career-high 18 points in a win over Kenyon on Jan. 15.

"Jordan was instrumental in our success this season," said Denison Head Coach Sara Lee.  "She made people think twice about penetrating the lane and taking high percentage shots near the basket."

Holmes was named to the 2014 NCAC All-Tournament team after setting new conference tournament records for total rebounds (54) and blocked shots (14).  She also grabbed 23 rebounds in the NCAC Tournament semifinal victory over Ohio Wesleyan, surpassing the previous tournament single-game mark.  Holmes also set NCAC and Denison school records in single-game blocked shots (11), and single-season rebounds (394) and blocks (164).

Her 164 blocked shots broke the NCAA Division III freshman record, besting the previous mark by 44.  That total also ranked fourth in NCAA Division III women's basketball history.  Holmes' rebounding total was fourth all-time in Division III among freshmen.

"She is a good teammate who is humble and unselfish," said Lee. "We will continue to challenge her to be more aggressive offensively in the future."
