The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) has named Jackie Hood of Lake Orion, a junior forward at Lawrence Technological University, as the WHAC Women’s Basketball Player of the Week. The selection made by coaches and administrators in the conference was announced Nov. 26.
On Nov. 20, the Lady Blue Devils’ co-captain helped led her team to its first-ever WHAC victory over Northwestern Ohio, 91-79. Hood had a 53.8 percent shooting average from the field and was 10-13 from the free throw line to give her 24 points on the night. She pulled down 10 rebounds, including six on the offensive end, and added two steals in 31 minutes of play.
Hood was coming off a 23-point, 10-rebound performance against Lourdes University in LTU’s first-ever WHAC game on Nov. 17.
For the season, Hood is averaging 17.0 points and 9.5 rebounds per game, nearly a “double-double” – double digits in two statistical categories.
