Justin Jackson Named POW

Justin Jackson was named the American Athletic Conference Player of the Week on the basis of averaging a double double in the win over Pitt in the Jimmy V Classic and the eventual blowout of Middle Tennessee State.

Following monster games against Pitt (12 pts, 9 rebs) and Middle Tennessee State (16 pts, 12 rebs, 4 blocks), senior center Justin Jackson has been named the American Athletic Conference Player Of The Week.  Well deserved after back-to-back ugly games at New Mexico and against Xavier.

Thankfully, this is the Justin Jackson we've seen more often than not this season.  He still has his WTF moments but even I have to admit he's been a lot better so far this season.  Pray to God that continues because they're not getting much from anyone else aside from Kilpatrick.
