Tennessee women’s basketball seniors Jordan Horston and Rickea Jackson have received Associated Press All-America Honorable Mention accolades, the media organization announced on Wednesday.
Horston, a 6-foot-2 guard, received that distinction for the second straight season, while Jackson, a 6-2 small forward was a first-time recipient.
A top-five finalist for the Cheryl Miller Award, Jackson paces Tennessee with 19.6 ppg. and chips in 6.2 rpg. in all games, while tallying 21.4 ppg. and 6.4 in league play this season. Horston, meanwhile, ranks second for the Lady Vols in scoring at 15.5 ppg. and leads UT in rebounding at 7.1 in all games while posting 13.9 ppg. and 7.5 rpg. vs. SEC foes.
Jackson has 16 20-point scoring efforts to her credit this season, while Horston has seven. Horston has carded eight double-doubles in 2022-23, while Jackson has produced four. Jackson has hit double-figure point totals in 30 of her 32 games, while Horston has fired in 10 or more points in 27 of 32 games completed.
Horston (16) and Jackson (16) are tied at No. 8 in career 20-point games at UT. Jackson’s total of 16 this season ranks as the ninth best single-season tally in school history.
The duo will lead No. 4 seed Tennessee into the NCAA Tournament First Round on Saturday at 1 p.m. ET, as the Lady Vols play host to No. 13 seed Saint Louis at Thompson-Boling Arena. The game will be televised on ABC.
