CHICAGO – Men’s basketball player Gary Talton has been named the UICFlames.com Student-Athlete of the Week for the period of Dec. 3-Dec. 9.  Talton guided the Flames to a pair of home wins last week, averaging 15.5 points, 6.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds per contest. 

In Saturday’s game against Colorado State, Talton posted a season-high 20 points (15 in the second half) as the Flames defeated the Rams, 64-55. The senior also dished out five assists and grabbed five rebounds.   Colorado State, a 2012 at-large NCAA Tournament team, entered the matchup receiving votes in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Poll.

Against Roosevelt last Wednesday, Talton notched a career-high tying eight assists with zero turnovers in the 81-43 victory.  He also chipped in 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting and captured three steals.

The Dallas native now has seven double-digit scoring performances on the season and ranks 17th in the nation with an assist-to-turnover ratio of 3.38. 

UIC has garnered some early-season recognition with their 8-1 start, receiving a No. 16 ranking in this week’s CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major poll.  The Flames wrap up a three-game homestand on Saturday against Eastern Michigan (6-2), which will be aired on Comcast SportsNet Chicago at 1 p.m.

Talton picks up his second UICFlames.com award of the season and men’s basketball collects its third-straight accolade.
