What people are saying about Jordin Alexander:

“She’s the best shooting guard and overall one of the best playmakers I’ve seen this season.  Jordin is unselfish and distributes the ball with some uncanny passes at times.  Her biggest improvement over her Junior year is that she’s become much more aggressive….and she sees and runs the floor very well.  She handles the ball well against the press.  HSE wants the ball in her hands when the game is on the line.  She’s an excellent free throw shooter.”. ~ Mark Morrow, President/Publisher at Hamilton County Sports Daily and contributing writer for Hoosier Basketball Magazine.  1/25/2012

 

“When I think of Jordin, I think of versatility.  This season, we asked her to go back to playing the point and she has blossomed in the position.  She has also been a big reason for this year’s success. While she has done a great job on the floor, she has also excelled in the classroom. Jordin is the true definition of student athlete.”  “Jordin moving to the point guard has really been a big difference. She does a great job running the club.”  ~ Chris Huppenthal, Head Coach – Hamilton Southeastern H.S. /  #18 All-Time Most Wins in Indiana High School Girls Basketball.  Career Record 304-66 (82%)

 Season Highlights

2/08/12 ~ PERFECT SEASON ends too early for #1/Indiana, #15/USA Today, Hamilton Southeastern as they lose to #5 North Central Panthers 42-39.  Averaging 65 points per game and having NEVER trailed at the end of ANY quarter break the entire season, HSE found themselves down 15-5 (Alexander with 4) at the end of the 1st quarter.  The Royals, who usually pressed every team the entire season, chose not to press North Central for 3 quarters, and staying on the bottom around 10-11 points for the duration.  In the 4th, HSE decided to apply full court pressure, as North Central’s guards were very vulnerable.  Within a few minutes the Royals were within a few points. After dropping again to a 7 point deficit, the press was wearing on North Central’s guards. After a Reimer basket, Alexander got a quick steal and beautiful scoop pass back to Reimer for another lay in, and the Royals were only down 2. The final minute of play was very dramatic for the Royals faithful, being down 4 points on what seemed to be the last possession, Alexander was fouled on a 3-point attempt with only :04 left.  Assuming it was best, Alexander sank all 3 free throws to put the Royals as close as they would get, 1 point. But it was too little, too late. The #1 ranked team in the land went home for the 5th straight time in sectional play. 2012 Indiana Miss Basketball Candidate, and point guard, Jordin Alexander led the Royals with 14 points, while Auburn bound, 6′ 5″ Nariah Taylor led North Central with 15 points. All-American, Taya Reimer added 9 for Southeastern. 

 

2/02/12 ~ PERFECT 20-0 Regular Season finish for #1/Indiana, #15/USA Today,  Royals, as they beat the Avon Orioles to clench the HCC Conference Title.  With 6′ 2″ 2012 Indiana Jr. All-Star candidate, Jessica Pongonis still resting her ankle for the Carmel Sectional, Hamilton Southeastern got off to a slow start on the road.  But, a second half increase in pressure by H.S.E., led by Indiana Miss Basketball Candidate, Jordin Alexander’s 5 steals, the Royals outscored Avon by 16 points in the 2nd half to win the Hoosier Crossroads Conference outright.  Alexander once again, showed her Senior point guard leadership, by verbally getting everyone on the same page early in the second half.  The 5′ 11″ point guard also, not only scored 17 points, but picked up the defensive effort, getting 5 steals.  The Royals are back in action Wednesday night as they take on the #5 (Sagarin) North Central Panthers featuring 6′ 5″, Auburn committed, Nariah Taylor in the 1st round of the Carmel Sectional.

1/28/12 ~ Jordin Alexander scores 16 points and dishes out 11 assists as #1 Hamilton Southeastern destroys West Lafayette, 80-29 on the road.  2012 Indiana Jr. All-Star Candidate, Jessica Pongonis did not dress, due to nursing a tweaked ankle. And, the West Lafayette Red Devils may have thought that was their opportunity to upset the #1 Hamilton Southeastern Royals. But, it wasn’t even close, as led by Miss Basketball Candidate, Jordin Alexander’s 16 points and astounding 11 assists. The unbelievable part of Jordin’s game doesn’t always show up on the stat line. Beating presses, directing traffic and breaking down opponents defensively  are many reasons the Royals are now 19-0, but one actual stat that is reported, but often overlooked is assists.  Alexander’s 11 assists today were often to the benefit of 6′ 4″ All-American, Taya Reimer. Reimer made perfect on 14-14 finishes from those many assists, as did Alexander, going 7-7 from field goal range.  Alexander also had her usual game handling the ball, with only 1 turnover.
