It is the first weekly honor of the season for Parker and the second of his SFA career.

In a matchup of the two top-teams in the conference, the Comets from Texas-Dallas were able to fend off the No. 1 seed Texas-Tyler Patriots, winning 82-74 in the American Southwest Conference Championship game.
