Southeast's Jackson honored

Southeast Missouri State University's Simone Jackson was named the Ohio Valley Conference newcomer of the week for women's basketball on Monday.

Jackson, a junior forward, averaged 9.3 points per game in her first three career starts, including 14 points during a loss to Southwest Missouri State.

For the season, Jackson is averaging 8.5 points per game and leads the OVC in field-goal shooting at 60 percent.

Southeast (6-5), which has won all six of the newcomer of the week awards so far, begins OVC play Thursday at Austin Peay.
