UTSA STAR EMBRACES UNIQUE CONFERENCE USA SCHEDULE
One of the country’s leading scorers the last couple of seasons, Jhivvan Jackson leads the Roadrunners in scoring again this year. Averaging 18.7 points per game in the ten games in which he’s played, Jackson paced UTSA in each of their two games this past weekend, with 31 in Saturday’s win and 26 in Friday’s loss.

Here’s Jackson’s thoughts on this wrinkle to the schedule, which started with losses to Rice in Houston the weekend before.
