A leader on and off the court

Marcel Dunson, Staff Writer

Lady Wildcat senior, forward Jordan Spencer rained in a season-high 24 points against St. Cloud State Saturday night. Jordan shot 60 percent from the field and was perfect from the line Saturday night.

Spencer also hauled in eight boards for the Lady Wildcats. She continued to be a standout player for the ‘Cats and this season will mark her third year in a row leading the Wildcats in scoring.

“I guess it feels pretty good that I was able to contribute by scoring that much, but I’ll take wins over high-scoring performances any day,” Spencer said.

Not only is she a remarkable athlete on the court, but she also made NSIC all-academic team two years in a row and is looking forward to doing it again.

“We have a team goal here at Wayne State to get a team GPA of 3.2 or higher. I want to succeed for me and my teammates because they deserve it all,” Spencer said.

Jordan also played at Division I UNO before transferring to Wayne State, then redshirted her first year here. Ever since, Spencer has been on a tear and hasn’t looked back.

“Things are done differently here than at UNO,” Spencer said. “Coach puts players in positions to succeed out on the court by developing plays that allow players to do what they are good at.”
