By  | 

HAZARD, KY. (WYMT) - Jordan Brock was named Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week on Tuesday after lighting up the Hooper Eblen Center with 53 total points in Tennessee Tech's two victories last week.

Brock averaged 26.5 points, 2.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds over the two games. She also logged a team-high 31.5 minutes per game.

Brock began the week by becoming Tech's first 20-point scorer of the season against SIUE, matching a then-season high with six 3-pointers. She finished 6-of-11 from behind the arc and 7-of-13 overall in game, and scored 15 of her points in the second half to help TTU run away with a 79-55 victory.

The Harlan, Ky. product kicked it up a notch for Saturday's finale, pouring in a career-high 33 points against Eastern Illinois, the highest single-game scoring output in the OVC this season.

Brock is establishing herself as one of the premier marksmen in the country, with her 45.5-percent season mark from 3-point range ranking 19th in NCAA Division I. She also finds herself among the nation's top 40 in free-throw percentage with an 87.8% success rate on the year.

This is the first time Brock has won Player of the Week from the conference, and the first time a Golden Eagle has done so since Samaria Howard on Feb. 22, 2016.
