She led the Golden Eagles in minutes played, three-point percentage, points, assists, and steals per game. In December 2022, she scored her 1,000th career point.
At Hononegah, King was the NIC-10 Conference All-Time leading scorer (2,505 points). She led Hononegah to two conference titles, three regional titles, one sectional/super sectional title, and one third place finish in state. She is currently pursuing a masters of school counseling at Marquette.
Jordan has started in all 124 games during her collegiate career, averaging 32.5 minutes per contest. King ranked top ten in the BIG EAST in five statistical categories last season: scoring (8th, 15.9), assists (5th, 4.0), steals (5th, 2.0), assist/TO ratio (9th, 1.3), and minutes played (8th, 34.3).
