HOPEWELL, N.J. — On Wednesday, Her Hoop Stats announced in an official release that UTSA forward Jordyn Jenkins was placed on the watch list for the 2024 Becky Hammon Mid-Major Player of the Year Award following a stellar season for the Roadrunners.
The Kent, Washington native was also named to the Preseason All-AAC Second Team and will look to carry momentum into the 2023-24 campaign after collecting a slew of accolades last season. She averaged 20.6 PPG at an incredibly efficient 49.3% shooting clip and shined on the glass, managing 7.5 RPG en route to earning both 2022-23 Conference-USA Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year honors.
Jenkins set the school record for points across a season, dropping 659 points and becoming the first student-athlete at UTSA to claim four C-USA Player of the Week honors in a single season. She was a double-double machine, logging nine across the year, with highlights including a career-high 40-point performance against North Texas that saw the team secure a thrilling 68-67 overtime win.
The watch list totaling 25 players includes representatives from 23 teams and 16 conferences and was created in 2020 to honor the legendary Becky Hammon, who was a three-time All-American at Colorado State. She followed up her collegiate career with a stellar WNBA tenure that saw her become an All-Star in six seasons and a pair of All-WNBA First Team nods. Additionally, Hammon became the second female coach in NBA history after joining the San Antonio Spurs in 2014 and recently led the Las Vegas Aces to back-to-back WNBA Championships.
