In the final weekly award of the season, Prairie View A&M University guard Gary Blackston has been named the Southwestern Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week after posting impressive outings in road wins at Alabama A&M and Alabama State.

Blackston shot 58 percent from the field in the two games, averaging 18.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals per game. The senior scored 17 points on an efficient 4-of-8 shooting line during the Panthers’ 72-65 win. He added three rebounds, three assists and three steals in the contest.

In Prairie View A&M's nationally-televised 96-69 win over Alabama State – during which the Panthers clinched a share of the SWAC regular season title and assured themselves the top overall seed in the 2019 Toyota SWAC Basketball Tournament – Blackston scored 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds.

The Baltimore, MD, native is the league's third-leading scorer at 15.5 points per game.
