Nerlens Noel named SEC Freshman of the Week (again)

Congrats to Nerlens Noel, who has been named the SEC Freshman of the Week for the third week in a row.

Noel averaged 10.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and seven blocks last week and set career highs of 19 points against Texas A&M and 12 blocks against Ole Miss. Noel’s 12 blocks broke the single-game block record at Kentucky, and amazingly, he is on pace to break Anthony Davis’ single-season record if the Cats can put together a good run in March.

Odds he keeps the award the rest of the season?

    Coincidentally, I’m averaging “10.5 rebound and second blocks” a game as well. 😉

    Admire the big guy’s hustle and team-first attitude. He has to be a coach’s dream!! Glad he is wearing the UK Blue and White.

    9. Seriously, you can tell this guy works his butt off to get better. He seems to rarely ever get tired and plays smart most of the time. A “coach’s dream” is a good way to describe him.
