ROCKTON – Hononegah senior basketball player Jordan King is our new WREX Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Rock Valley College.
King is now the queen of NIC-10 scoring, as she surpassed Brea Edwards’ conference scoring record. But she’s not only concerned with scoring. King makes sure to emphasize all facets of her game.
“Defensive quickness,” King says is a big area she’s developed. “I think just playing against some of the best players in the nation over the summer is what helped me and that’s what’s definitely developed.”
King will play at Marquette next year, but she wants to appreciate these final games of her high school career.
“Obviously I’m looking forward to that, but I think it’s really important right now to cherish the moments I have left and playing with some of my best friends,” King said. “I think just cherishing these last couple moments of high school is going to be really, really important.”
Hononegah sits a game back of first place Boylan in the NIC-10 standings. King and the Lady Indians get one more crack at the Lady Titans in the regular season with a potential playoff matchup looming if both teams get that far.
