Welcome to our new series Select Seniors where we will be discussing seniors from colleges in the NCAA. This is to recognize them and their hard work over the years. This week we have two seniors from Duke University.
This series was created and written by Nikita “RED” Lear.
He is a 184 pound, 6 foot 2 guard from Norcross, Georgia. Jordan was named to the Gwinnett County All-Star Game following his senior season in high school. He averaged 9.4 points and a team-high 3.3 assists for Team United during the 2016 EYBL season. He even earned All-Class 7A South honors and was named to the North Senior Boys All-Star Team by the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association in 2017. Jordan earned tournament titles his senior year of high school. Although Jordan had seven turnovers his freshman year at Duke he totaled 24 assists that season. During the Duke Canada Tour he only averaged 4.0 points, he came back with eight assists across the three exhibition games. His sophomore year, 2018 to 2019, he played in a career-best 35 games. Jordan has came a long way since freshman year compared to this past year. Jordan’s junior year he started 15 of the 31 games. I can’t wait to see the show he puts on this year. Maybe this year he will start more games and become the star.
Below is just one of Jordan Goldwire’s many highlights.
Our second senior is a 6’2, 175 pound guard from Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. Mike averaged 22.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game as a senior in high school, he was also team captain. He scored 1,144 career points in high school. Although as a freshman in college he only saw action in four games, during a game against St. Francis, Mike played two minutes and scored three points. During the Duke Canada Tour, Mike played in the final two games. He only had one rebound and one assist, however. In the season of 2018 to 2019 he showed in four games, he also played a career high of 4 minutes. Mike was presented a scholarship by the head coach Mike Krzyzewski before his junior season, this past year. A fun fact is that his father was apart of winning the 1986 NCAA championship on Duke men’s soccer team. Looking forward to see the show he puts on this year. I’d like to see Mike put up more points and play more.
