Jordan transferring to USI

EVANSVILLE, Ind.The University of Southern Indiana women's basketball team announced that 5'9" sophomore guard Asha Jordan (Ft. Wayne, Indiana) is transferring to play for Head Coach Rick Stein's Screaming Eagles in 2006-07.

Jordan comes to USI from the University of Albany where she played in one game.

Prior to college, Jordan was a two-year letterwinner at Snider High School where she averaged 9.0 points per game as a senior. She earned honorable mention All-Summit Athletic Conference honors while captaining her squad to the Summit Athletic Conference championship in 2004. Jordan was named Snider's Female Distinguished Athlete of the Year in 2004.

Her father, Walter, was a two-time All-Big Ten selection at Purdue in the 1970's before being drafted by the New Jersey Nets and playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers for a season.

Academically, Jordan was a member of the National Honor Society and was a four-year scholar athlete as well as a member of the Student Council and VIP Club. She also was the Vice President of her senior class.

"Asha was slowed last year by an injury early in the season, but gained some valuable collegiate experience," Stein said. "She is an excellent shooter who will stretch the defense from the three-point line."

Jordan joins 5'9" junior guard Akiya Alexander (Evanston, Illinois) and 5'7" junior guard Missy Glaser (Evansville, Indiana) on USI's list of newcomers.
