Holmes wins 5th NCAC POW award

Holmes wins 5th NCAC POW award

For the fifth time this season and the ninth time in her career, Denison junior post Jordan Holmes was named North Coast Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week.

Holmes received the honor after breaking her fourth NCAC record this season when she became the NCAC's career leader in rebounds on Saturday at Allegheny. Needing only 21 rebounds in the regular season finale to surpass the career mark, Holmes grabbed 22 boards against the Gators to amass 1,219 career rebounds. That total eclipsed the mark set by former Ohio Wesleyan standout Jill Myers (1,217 – 1984-88). It took Myers 101 games over four seasons to set the conference rebound record, while Holmes broke the record in 79 games and less than three seasons.

Last week, the Pittsburgh native averaged a double-double with 18.5 ppg and 18 rpg to go along with11 blocks, six steals and a 74 percent shoot percentage (14-for-19). Holmes now holds the NCAC career rebounds and blocks records, while also re-setting her own marks for single-game rejections and single-season rebounds.

Holmes and the top-seeded Big Red (22-3) will be back in action tonight when they host eighth-seeded Ohio Wesleyan (5-11) in the quarterfinals of the NCAC Tournament. Tip-off from Livingston Gym is slated for 6 p.m.
