Ivy-Curry named AAC Player of the Week

The La Marque, Texas guard earns the first conference weekly honor of his career after totaling 53 points in two wins last week.

IRVING, Texas – Notching a program first after leading the charge on an outstanding late-season week for the UTSA men’s basketball team, Jordan Ivy-Curry has been named the American Athletic Conference Player of the Week, officials from the conference office announced on Monday.

The junior guard from La Marque, Texas, Ivy-Curry was a key component in helping the Roadrunners to a 2-0 week with a home victory on Wednesday over Tulsa and road upset at SMU on Saturday.

Ivy-Curry came off the bench for the Roadrunners and averaged 26.5 points and 5.0 rebounds on the week. He shot 50 percent from the field (17-for-34) and 60 percent from three-point range (9-for-15). Ivy-Curry had 20 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals against the Golden Hurricane before dropping 33 points against the Mustangs in Dallas, registering five triples – including the right-arc three pointer to ice the game with a 77-73 lead and 15 seconds remaining.

This honor marks the first AAC Player of the Week award for both Ivy-Curry and UTSA overall, with the program in its first year in the conference. It is the first conference Player of the Week award for UTSA since Jhivvan Jackson was named Conference USA POTW on Feb. 15, 2021.


The Roadrunners have a brief gap in the schedule with no midweek contest but return to the court at the Convocation Center at 2 p.m. on Sunday for the March 10 Senior Day game against Temple. The AAC Basketball Championships begins on March 13 at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.
