FRISCO, Texas - Stephen F. Austin senior guard Antonio Bostic was named the Southland Conference men's basketball player of the week on Monday after leading SFA to a win at Florida International on Saturday.
Bostic, a first team all-SLC choice last season, poured in a career-high 23 points in a 69-60 win over the Golden Panthers, helping SFA to a 2-0 start to the season and avenging a two-point loss to FIU last year in Nacogdoches.
The senior hit eight of his 14 shots from the floor, including three from long distance and had 17 of his points in the first half while the `Jacks were building a 40-24 lead at the break.
He added a pair of rebounds and two steals as well, while the `Jacks shot 59.6 percent as a team from the floor for the game. It is the second time in his career he has earned a weekly honor from the league.
SFA has a pair of games on tap for this week, beginning Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. against Jarvis Christian in Nacogdoches before traveling to Tulsa on Saturday afternoon to take on the Golden Hurricane.
