Holmes garners national honor

Jordan Holmes

The honors continue to roll in for Jordan Holmes.  After earning her third North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week honor of the season on Monday, she was named the United States Basketball Writers Association National Player of the Week on Tuesday, Jan. 5.

Holmes was selected for these honors after averaging a double-double in three games last week while helping DU to a 3-0 record.

Holmes opened the week with her fifth-career triple-double, setting a new Division III record, in a 97-81 win over North Central at Otterbein's Smokey Ballenger Classic. The 6-foot-1 junior needed just one half of basketball to break a three-way tie for the national career record, eventually finishing the contest with 19 points, 21 rebounds and a conference-record 14 blocks. The 21 boards marked her fifth game with 20 or more rebounds this season.

The following day against the host Cardinals, Holmes became the fifth player in NCAC history to record 1,000-career rebounds. The Pittsburgh Pa. native reached that milestone with 55 seconds left in the game. In the conference victory at Wooster, Holmes posted her 10th double-double of the season with a 17-point, 16-rebound effort. She also blocked seven shots, which moved her into seventh place on the Division III career list.

In three games last week, Holmes averaged 17.3 points, 16.3 rebounds and 8.7 blocks per game. She is just four rejections away from becoming the sixth player in Division III history to record 400 blocks in a career. Holmes is also 200 rebounds shy of the NCAC record currently held by former Ohio Wesleyan standout Jill Myers (1,217 – 1984-88).

Holmes currently leads the nation in blocked shots (87), defensive rebounds per game (14), total rebounds (233) and total rebounds per game (17.9). She is also second in Division III in blocks per game (6.69), double-doubles (10) and triple-doubles (2), and ranks fourth in field-goal percentage (69.5 percent). Holmes trails only Emily Lavin of Eastern (6.80) in the blocks per game category and is just one double-double behind Olivia Murphy of UMass Boston (11).

The Big Red (10-3, 3-1 NCAC) returns to action on Wednesday (Jan. 6) when they travel to Greencastle, Ind. to take on DePauw University. Tipoff from the Neal Fieldhouse is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
