USM Athletic Communications Intern Brooke Cross (also a senior captain of the Huskies' softball team) is bringing back Random Questions With A Husky and bringing back hard-hitting questions like, "What is your favorite movie?"
Junior Jackie Luckhardt (Londonderry, NH) of the University of Southern Maine women's basketball team earned all-conference second team recognition after an exceptional 2019 season that was pivotal to the Huskies third place finish in the Little East Conference. Luckhardt was a 2017 Maine State All-Rookie team pick as a freshman. Sitting out her second season due to injury, Luckhardt finished out her second season with the Huskies improving in all statistical categories averaging 9.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.4 steals per game, and shooting a career-best 42.9 percent from the field.
The Little East Conference leader in steals with 93 (63 against LEC opponents), Luckhardt was first in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.5), and first in assists (95). An outstanding rebounder, the 5-5 guard finished the season ranked eighth in rebounds (167). Luckhardt is also an employee in the athletic media relations department at USM. While working alongside Jackie there has never been a dull moment similar to watching her compete on the court. She brings a quality of high standards to everything she participates in showing her passion for excellence in the office, the classroom, and in her athletic play but most importantly Luckhardt has a phenomenal taste in music.
