PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Chloe Jackson • LSU
Guard • Sophomore • Upper Marlboro, Md.

  • Jackson scored a career-high 34 points in LSU's SEC home opener win against Florida, which also snapped a two-game losing streak to the Gators.
  • She is the first LSU player to score 34 or more points since Seimone Augustus scored 35 at Florida in 2005-06.
  • The 34 points ties the second-most for an SEC player this season; and is the most in an SEC game so far this year.
  • She was 6-of-6 from the field in the second quarter against UF and had 21 points by halftime off a 9-of-11 effort from the field.
  • Led LSU in assists with 5 and played the entire 40 minutes versus Florida, committing only two turnovers in the game. Also registered four steals.
  • Scored 22 points in a 53-52 win over Arkansas that snapped a four-game losing streak to the Razorbacks.
  • Hit three of LSU's four three-pointers in the game; had back-to-back treys at the end of the 2nd quarter and start of the 3rd quarter to get LSU within four points after trailing the entire game.
  • Put LSU within one point with a jumper with just over a minute left in the game, and a short time later came up with the crucial steal and raced for the successful layup to give LSU its first lead of the game, 52-51, with just 8.2 seconds left in the game.
  • With two seconds left on the clock and LSU up, 53-52, Jackson deflected Arkansas' inbounds pass and then blocked Devin Cosper's three-point attempt to preserve the win for LSU.
