NEW ORLEANS, La. – The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) released its 2022-23 All-District Teams, and New Orleans junior Jordan Johnson was named to the First Team.

The All-District honors are voted on by NABC-member coaches across NCAA Division I. New Orleans is in District 22 among all SLC and SWAC institutions.

Johnson was honored as a second-team All-Southland Selection by the Southland Conference. The 6-foot-1 guard led the league and the nation in three-point percentage (48.2).

The Memphis native also led the Privateers through the first and second rounds of the SLC Championship tournament putting up 29 points the first night and 32 points in the semifinal against Southeastern.

The junior had a career high night with 39 points in the SLC opener at HCU marking the most points scored by a Privateer since Jamie McNeily’s 40 points against Denver in 2007. It was also the most scored by a Privateer on the road since Ledell Eackles scored 45 at FIU in 1988.

With 93 triples this season, Johnson tops the list of most three-pointers made in a single season in Privateer history. He surpasses Bryson Robinson with 87 made in the 2019-20 season.

His 48.2 three-point percentage also lands him second on the list of top three-point percentages in a single season behind Gabe Corchiani’s 48.5 percent (49-101) in 1986-87.

Johnson averaged 18 points and 3.8 assists per game in 27 contests this season.

He is the sixth Privateer to be named NABC All-District under Head Coach Mark Slessinger joining Erik Thomas (2016-2017), Ezekiel Charles (2017-18), Damion Rosser (2020-2021), Troy Green (2020-2021), and Derek St. Hilaire (2021-2022).
