Wins over Tennessee and Auburn got boost from freshman Jordan Lewis

When Alabama beats Tennessee and Auburn in the space of five days, it’s a cause for celebration. The Crimson Tide’s Jordan Lewis can celebrate with her fifth Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week honor.
Lewis, a native of Windermere, Fla., has now won as many SEC Freshman of the Week awards as the Crimson Tide had total in its program heading into this season.
Lewis scored three of Alabama’s 10 overtime points and pulled down two clutch rebounds in Auburn’s final two possessions Monday as Bama took the 63-61 victory over the Tigers. It was the first Alabama win in Auburn since 2011.
In Thursday’s home win over Tennessee in Coleman Coliseum, Lewis tied her career high in assists with eight, helping Alabama beat the Lady Vols in back-to-back games for the first time in program history.
For the week, Lewis averaged 10 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 2.5 steals in 39 minutes of action. She’s now up to 32 minutes per game overall and 34 minutes per game in SEC play, which is the most of any freshman in the league. She’s also the only freshman to rank in the top 10 in the SEC in assists per game, averaging 4 per contest for the season.
