    Desmar Jackson was named the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week, the league announced Monday, after the junior guard made the game-winning 3-point shot with 12 seconds left to beat Fresno State last week.

    The Wyoming transfer led the Salukis (4-1) with a career-high 25 points on 9-of-16 shooting from the field, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range against the Bulldogs. He also added eight rebounds and two blocked shots.

    Saluki players have won the award eight times since its inception in 2005. The last time a Saluki claimed the honor was on Jan. 18, 2010, when then-freshman Gene Teague won it.
