USF Bulls guard Stephan Jiggetts was selected to the American Athletic Conference honor roll after a week in which the Bulls went 1-1, which included the first conference victory in program history.

The grad transfer from FDU led all scorers this week with 16.5 ppg shooting 45% and 13-for-17 from the charity stripe. He also added three rebounds per game and 4.5 assists per game on the week.

In USF’s victory(!?!?!) over Tulane on Wednesday, Jiggetts played an eye-pooping 40 minutes without turning the ball over once. He led all scorers with 23 points on 6-of-11 shooting from the field, 2-of-6 from behind the arc and 9-of-13 at the stripe.

He added five assists, two rebounds and a timely block of a Tulane 3-point attempt at the end of the game that clinched the victory for the green and gold.

In USF’s loss at Houston, Jiggetts led all team scorers with ten points on 3-of-9 from the field, but failed to record a three pointer. He did shoot a perfect 4-for-4 from the stripe and and added four assists from the point in 32 minutes of play. His five rebounds on the day were tied for second on the team.

The guard is currently second on the team with 12.1 points per game, is 12th in the conference in assists with 3.4 per game and third in the conference from the free throw line shooting 84.2% (48-for-57.)

He and his teammates will try to pick up their second conference victory on the year against the visiting Memphis Tigers on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. on ESPNews.
