Patterson named the SWAC’s Player of the Week

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Texas Southern University guard Jalyn Patterson has been named the Southwestern Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week. The league made the announcement Tuesday morning.

Patterson, a 6-foot-1 graduate transfer from Atlanta, Ga., scored a team-best 20 points along with five rebounds and five assists to lead Texas Southern to an 88-73 victory over Texas A&M on Dec. 29. Patterson, who shot 8-of-14 from the field and connected on 3-of-6 from beyond the arc, was particularly effective in helping to close out the Aggies as he scored 14 points in the second half to help preserve the win.

Patterson currently sits third in the league in scoring at 15.1 points per night, a mark that is tops for the SWAC’s highest-scoring offense. He is also third in the conference in terms of three-pointers made per game (2.7) and is tied for the league lead in assists per game (4.4).
