Tennessee senior Rickea Jackson received her second accolade of the day on Wednesday, as the United States Basketball Writers Association named her to its All-America Team as an honorable mention selection for the first time.
Earlier in the afternoon, Associated Press announced honorable mention distinction as well for the 6-foot-2 forward from Detroit, Mich.
A top-five finalist for the Cheryl Miller Award and All-SEC First Team selection, 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. Her 19.6 scoring average ranks No. 5 all-time by a UT senior and qualifies as the No. 4 career scoring average by any Lady Vol (min. 30 games).
Jackson has 16 20-point scoring efforts to her credit this season and four double-doubles. She is tied with teammate Jordan Horston at No. 8 in career 20-point games at UT with 16. Jackson’s total of 16 in 2022-23 also ranks as the ninth best single-season tally in school history.
