Tre Flowers, Texas A&M-Kingsville, JR, Kinesiology, G, Bryan, Texas, A&M Consolidated HS
Flowers tied a program record and registered the highest point total for a Javelina in a game in almost eight years during a week in which he helped the Hogs go 2-0. In an 82-68 win over Texas A&M-Texarkana, Flowers buried nine three-pointers, tying the mark set by Johnny Estelle in 1996 for threes in a game. The junior finished the day with 31 points, the most by a Javelina since Robert Williams scored 35 on Jan. 23rd, 2012. This spectacular performance came one day after Flowers posted a game-high 17 points in a 70-58 victory over CSU-Pueblo. For the week, Flowers hit 12 triples and shot 54.5 percent from beyond the arc while piling up 48 points.

Clashon Gaffney, Tarleton, JR, Marketing, F, Clarksville, Texas, Clarksville HS
Gaffney had a career game in a 71-63 win over Northwestern Oklahoma State. The junior recorded his first career double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds - both career highs for the forward. He also added a season-high three blocks in the win. Gaffney helped hold the Rangers to 39 percent shooting from the floor, and only 35.5 percent in the second half.
