Brandon Knight Named SEC Freshman Player Of The Week

It almost seems silly to make a post about this with how often a Kentucky player wins these awards.  Nevertheless, congratulations to Brandon Knight for being noted the Frshman Player of the Week for his contributions during the Alabama and South Carolina game.  Fromt he official SEC Website:

Kentucky’s Brandon Knight was named SEC Freshman of the Week after averaging 18.5 points, 5.5 rebounds , 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals in games at Alabama and at South Carolina. Knight scored in double-figures for the 13th and 14th straight games last week. He recorded his eighth 20-point game with a game-high 23 points in UK’s win at South Carolina. The eight 20-point games ties for third most by a freshman in school history, one off the record. Has hit multiple 3-pointers in four straight games, hitting 13 triples over the last four games. Knight pulled down a career-high seven rebounds in win at South Carolina

It is (from my count,) Brandon’s fourth time to be selected.

    Although it happens rather frequently, you should still give the kid the credit he deserves. To downplay it as just another accomplishment is an under acknowledgment of how hard these kids work day in day out. In short, don’t sell ’em short.

    Nice. I am impressed with many of his performances this year. I would like to see a better A/T ratio, but I like his ability to shoot.

    7.) What part of that story has anything at all to do with Bruce Pearl? Remember to keep players separate from coaches or else the “Cal has never been named in NCAA report” excuse is invalid.

    #3 and #7–The Vols are investigating this themselves. After the previous infractions they want to present themselves as taking care of things the proper way.

    As for the possible violation, it should not matter. Well, it shouldn’t unless other people have used the bar for music videos and were charged but the player was not. If I were a bar owner and someone (anyone–basketball player or not) wanted to use my bar for a video, I would let them do it for free. There is no benefit if it is allowed for everyone, right? Nothing to see here, move along.

    13 – I agree that it isn’t a big deal, but it is just another problem for UT. Considering how they are sticking by sleazy Pearl, they deserve more problems. He should have been canned and they deserve what they get as long as he is there.
