Five on Fire

The Five on Fire is not a suggested starting five, but rather our take on the five players that performed the best over the last week. The Golden Hurricane is 2-1 on the year, and this past week included only one contest, a 75-59 win over Arkansas State. So, here is our third installment of the Five on Fire for the 2007-2008 basketball season, listed in alphabetical order.

Glenn Andrews, FR, Guard
Andrews continues to impress. I'll say it again: It is amazing that this kid is a true freshman. Andrews is currently Tulsa's leading scorer, and he's been in every edition of the Five on Fire this season. In 21 minutes against Arkansas State, he finished with 14 points, 3 assists and 3 steals. On the season, he is averaging 13.3 points, 2.7 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.7 rebounds. Andrews is shooting 50-percent (13-of-26) from the field and 45.5-percent (5-of-11) from beyond the arc in 22.3 minutes per game.

Jerome Jordan, SO, Center
The 7-footer from Jamaica put on a show against Arkansas State. We said last week that although he is still learning and has a ways to go, his potential is certainly shining. It was shining in a big way with his 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks against the Indians. He was 5-of-7 from the field and 4-of-6 from the free throw line. He has shown marked improvement through three games this year and is now the team's third-leading scorer. Jordan holds averages of 8.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3 blocks, while shooting 77-percent. And that is all in only 19 minutes per game.
