MONTICELLO University of Arkansas-Monticello women’s basketball player Jordan Goforth has been selected to the Division II Bulletin All-Freshman Team, released Monday in conjunction with the organization’s All-America awards. 

   Goforth recently concluded her first collegiate season by leading the Cotton Blossoms in eight different statistical categories to aid in her selection as Great American Conference Freshman of the Year. She became UAM’s first freshman of the year honoree since the University joined the NCAA in 1995.

The Plano, Texas native played in all 27 games this season, making 22 starts at guard. She led the team in total minutes played (693) and averaged 25.7 minutes per game. She shot 46.2 percent from the field (129-of-279), 33.8 percent on three-pointers (27-of-80) and 77.9 percent on free-throws (60-of-77). 

   Goforth reached double-digits in scoring in 19 of 27 games this season, while eclipsing the 20-point barrier on four different occasions, including her career-high of 24 points in a loss to SW Oklahoma State at home Feb. 2. She scored 23 points in UAM’s overtime loss to Arkansas Tech in the opening round of the 2013 Great American Conference Championship Tournament.
