FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Freshman Jessica Jackson has made an immediate impact on the Razorback women’s basketball team.

The 6-3 forward from Jacksonville, Ark., leads the team in scoring and is quickly making a name for herself throughout the Southeastern Conference.

Jackson is coming off a 24-point performance in which she led Arkansas in a come-from-behind win at No. 19/18 LSU in Baton Rouge, La., Sunday.

Here are a few more numbers that show just how good Jackson is:

  • Jessica Jackson is averaging 16.6 points per game and ranks fifth in the SEC. The highest-ranking freshman scorer in the conference, Jackson is the only freshman among the top 20 scorers in the league and is just one of three underclassmen in the top 15.
  • Jackson ranks third in SEC only games averaging 18.27 ppg and also ranks tied for 14th in the league averaging 6.6 rpg.
  • Jackson has reached double digits in 25 of 27 games this season. She had a double-digit scoring run of 10 straight games earlier this season, which surpassed last year’s best mark of nine straight.
  • Jackson has scored 13+ points in 22 games of 27 games this season, including 15 of the last 17 contests.
  • Jackson is also one of the most efficient scorers in the league, ranked 12th in the SEC for field-goal percentage (.407).
  • Jackson is a three-time SEC Freshman of the Week selection, earning her most recent honor in large part after scoring a career-best 31 points vs. Ole Miss.
  • Jackson has recorded four double-doubles this season. Her most recent was 19 points and a career-high 12 rebounds at home against Auburn.
  • As just a freshman, Jackson became the first Razorback to score 31+ points in a game since Dominique Washington scored 37 as a junior (2005-06). Just three Razorbacks have put up 31+ point performances dating back to the 2002-03 season (Jackson, Washington, Shameka Christon).


Jackson and the Razorbacks return to action at Texas A&M Thursday in a game televised by FOX SportsSouthwest at 7 p.m. Check local listings for more information.
