The Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) announced the SAGU Lions', Rishaad Alexander, as the Men’s Basketball Player-of-the-Week.

Alexander is a 5’10 junior guard from Chicago, Ill. He averaged 19.5 points and 3.5 assists in two games. First when SAGU upset the No. 7 ranked Oklahoma Baptist Bison (63-60) on the road last Thursday and then beat John Brown University (84-81) on Saturday while at home.

Alexander shot better than 74% (14-of-19) in those two games.

Head Coach Donnie Bostwick is proud of Alexander’s performance, as well as the entire team, he said.

“Our team had a great week going 2-0. We like to think of all honors as team awards. That is our team's second Player of the Week this year. Rishaad is very unselfish and it is good to see that rewarded.”

The Lions' basketball team will be in action next at 5 p.m. on Saturday when they travel to take on Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, Okla.
