USC’s Jordyn Jenkins Earns First Career Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Player of the Week Award

Feb 14, 2022

USC women's basketball sophomore Jordyn Jenkins was a force to reckon with once again last week, averaging 22.7 points and 10.7 rebounds across three Pac-12 road games. USC's top scorer the past six games, Jenkins has deservedly earned her first career selection as the Pac-12 Player of the Week. She is the first Trojan to do so this season, and marks the 50th such honor all-time for USC.

In a road stretch that featured three games in five days, Jenkins opened up with 21 points for USC in a loss at Utah. Two days later, she posted a career night with 29 points and 15 rebounds, while hitting 12 of 13 free throws to help anchor a key win at Washington. She'd follow that double-double outing with another one at Washington State, scoring 18 points with 12 rebounds to notch her sixth double-double of the season.

Jenkins is USC's top scorer to date with 15.4 point per game, ranking her sixth in the Pac-12. She's also second on the boards for USC with 7.0 rebounds per game.

Jenkins and her Trojans are lined up for their final home stand this weekend, hosting Utah at 7 p.m. on Friday (Feb. 18) and then taking on Colorado at 1 p.m. on Sunday (Feb. 20) at Galen Center.
