After four years in Evanston during which she started all but 25 of the 110 games she played, Jordan Hamilton is headed to Stanford next season as a graduate transfer.
Hamilton announced the news on Twitter at 4:26 p.m. CT on Wednesday afternoon.
The 5-foot-8 guard out of Frisco, Texas, will join the reigning national champions for the last year of her collegiate basketball career. As a Wildcat, Hamilton was an integral part of Joe McKeown’s teams from the moment she stepped foot in Evanston. She came in as an ESPN top-100 recruit, averaging an impressive 7.7 points per game and 4.6 assists per game as a freshman.
Although Hamilton never ascended to superstar status, she certainly had her moments in the purple and white. Most notably, fans will remember her explosive 12-point first quarter in the second round of the NCAA Tournament against Louisville this past March.
Hamilton finishes her Northwestern career having averaged a respectable 7.6 points per game and 3.3 assists per game. Hamilton’s departure leaves Joe McKeown in a tough position, as he will be tasked with replacing both of his starters in the backcourt from this past season
