The Sparks selected Britney Jordan with their third pick in the 2009 WNBA Draft. From Division II Texas A&M Commerce, Jordan came to Los Angeles unknown to most fans.
The 5’8” guard averaged a nation-leading 31.3 points per game, and added to that with 6.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 2.5 steals per outing. She was named a 2009 Daktronics Division II Women's Basketball First-Team All-American for the first time after the 2008-09 season. With that selection, Jordan became the first player in school history to receive first-team All-American honors. She finished the season with 909 points, a Lone Star Conference and school record.
The Peoria, Ill., native earned multiple honors and accolades as a two-year starter at Peoria Woodruff High School. She averaged 31 points and 10 rebounds as a junior and 28 points a game as a senior. Jordan, a three-time Peoria Journal Star Class 2A Player of the Year, was selected to the McDonald's All-America Team as a senior.
