Jordan King

(2-26-19) The Hononegah Indians (32-4) will make the school’s first ever trip to the IHSA State Girls Basketball Championships after winning the Class 4A Super-Sectional over Wheaton Warrenville South 50-33 at Streamwood. Senior Jordan King, the four year Indians star and Marquette signee, led the way.

King had half of the Indians’ 50 points with 25 points and 7 rebounds…and adding many key defensive plays in the 2nd half. Helping out in the Indians win, Hannah Malcomson added 11 points, including three 3-pointers, and Cali Schmitz with 8 points.

Hononegah coach Randy Weibel told the Daily News

“She’s (King) been doing it all year. She’s a great anticipator. She got us going and she carried us. She’s a great player, that’s the bottom line.”
