FAYETTEVILLE — Former member of the University of Arkansas women’s basketball team, Juliet Jackson, has been selected as a member of the Southeastern Conference 2014 Class of Women’s Legends. She will join the @RazorbackWBB team in Duluth, Ga., and be honored at the half of Arkansas’ opening round game against Ole Miss.
Jackson was a team captain for Arkansas and played for the Razorbacks from 1987-90. In 1989 and 1990 she was named to the All-SWC second team. She was a member of the 1987 WNIT Champion team, but her biggest season was in 1990 when she helped Arkansas to a 12-1 road record and to a share of the SWC title and the NCAA West Regional. In that season, her four free throws in the last minute helped Arkansas hand No. 6 Texas its first Southwest Conference loss, snapping a 183-game coonference winning streak. In the NCAA Tournament in Athens, her 30 points against Georgia helped the Hogs get to the third round of the tournament. Jackson scored a total of 1,213points–17th in UA career history–in her four seasons at the University of Arkansas and averaged 10.1 points per game in her career. She earned a total of 195 career steals, including a team-leading 61 takeaways during the 1987-88 season. She ranks 11th in career assists at Arkansas with 313.
The Southeastern Conference 2014 Class of Women’s Legends showcases former student-athletes from all 14 SEC member institutions.
