NORFOLK, Va. -- Junior guard T.J. Jordan (Portsmouth, Va.) was named the Women's Basketball Colonial Athletic Association Co-Player of the Week for the week ending January 7th.

Jordan averaged 21.5 points per game last week as she led the Lady Monarchs to their first two conference victories of the season.

The third year Lady Monarch poured in a season-high 25 points against Virginia Commonwealth in ODU's CAA opener last Thursday. It was the fourth time this season she has scored 20 or more points in a game. She also shot a blistering 56.3 percent (9-of-16) from the floor, including a career-tying seven three-pointers. She was just two treys shy of tying the school record.

Jordan followed with a game-high 18 points in the win over Drexel last Sunday in ODU's first home CAA win of the 2006-07 season. Against the Dragons she shot a perfect 5-of-5 from the free throw line, the fifth time Jordan has gone perfect from the charity stripe.

On the season, Jordan leads the Lady Monarchs averaging 15.6 points per game. She is also third in the nation in three-point field goals made averaging 3.5 per game.

The Lady Monarchs close out a three-game home stand this week hosting Georgia State on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. and Hofstra on Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
