University of Tulsa sophomore golfer Matt Mabrey was named the Conference USA Golf Athlete of the Week.

Mabrey, from Little Rock, Arkansas, finished in fifth place in a field of 83 golfers at Tulsa's first tournament of the spring season, the UTSA Oak Hills Invitational, earlier this week. Mabrey carded rounds of 74-70-69 for an even-par 213 total at the par-71 Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio, Texas.

Mabrey's fifth-place finish improved upon his 54th place finish at last year's Oak Hills Invitational and ties for the second-best finish of his career and best performance of the 2012-13 season.

The C-USA weekly honor is the first of the season for Mabrey and the second of his career.
