Waxahachie, Texas – February 13, 2017 – For the first time this season a Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball player has received the Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) Player-of-the-Week honor.  SAGU Sophomore Isaak Rowe has received the honor.

SAGU Head Coach Donnie Bostwick believes Rowe is extremelly deserving, “Isaak is one of the most talented players in the SAC, he is also one of the most unselfish. He is well deserving of this award. He will consider it a team award and a blessing.”

Last week Rowe helped to lead the Lions to a perfect 2-0 record.  The sophomore forward from

Rowe made 15-of-21 shots from the field for 71 percent.  He scored 26 points in the 81-79 win against SCU, going nine-of-11 shooting.  The highlight of Rowe’s week came in the final 16 seconds in overtime against SCU, Rowe made four-of-four free throws, giving SAGU the 81-79 win.

Bostwick has recently made changes in Rowe’s role and believes it has only made him better, “I recently moved him to point guard to get him more involved in our offense. He has stepped up in a big way since then. It is hard to remember at times that he is only a sophomore. He is capable of a triple double and always guards the opponent’s best player.”

Currently, the Lions are in a three-way tie for first place in the SAC.  SAGU, Texas Wesleyan and Oklahoma City are all 9-5 in conference play.  On Thursday, February 16, 2017, SAGU will host Wayland Baptist University.  WBU is currently in a three-way tie for second place in the SAC.
