Hayford on Hickert: “Jordan will have a solid senior season, as he has gained from the experience of one year in our system. He is one of the best shooting big men in the Big Sky Conference, has a strong intelligence for the game, and is a person of great character and discipline. Our coaching staff really enjoys coaching Jordan.”

He had a season-high 12 points at Idaho (11/30/11), making 4-of-9 3-point attempts. He had a season-high six rebounds in EWU’s Big Sky Conference Tournament victory over Idaho State (3/3/12).
