Only one girls basketball player in all of Chenango County has even attempted as many free throws (50) as Unadilla Valley guard Jordan Anderson has made. And that person amassed her free throw attempts in two more games than the Storm’s junior point guard.
Anderson, despite her 5-foot-3 frame, continually shows courage and relentless determination in taking the ball hard to the basket against much larger opponents. So even on nights when she is not shooting the ball well, she still makes an impact on the scoreboard.
“She’s tough and she loves the contact,” said fifth-year UV head coach, Brandi Backus. “It doesn’t matter how big you are, she’ll challenge you.”
Anderson was having an off night from the field in last week’s UV Tournament championship game against Cazenovia. Cazenovia, Section III’s reigning Class B champion, lost some key players from last year’s championship team, but remains as a formidable opponent.
