Jackson Earns Third C-USA Player of the Week Honor

UTEP sophomore guard Stefon Jackson was named the Conference USA Co-Player of the Week on Monday -- the third such honor for the Philadelphia native this season.

Jackson posted a pair of 20-point games last week and set a UTEP record for rebounds by a guard against Houston on Saturday. The sophomore started the week with 20 points, 7-of-15 from the field, with three rebounds in 29 minutes in the Miners' 87-78 loss at Southern Miss. In Saturday’s 79-71 win over Houston he collected 21 points, 17 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 37 minutes. For the week, Jackson averaged 20.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists with a .406 (13-for-32) field goal percentage and .750 (12-for-16) free throw percentage.

Jackson shared this week's honor with Memphis junior forward Joey Dorsey.
