You could make a good case for Ashton Hagans being Kentucky’s best player right now, and in turn, he was just named SEC Freshman of the Week.
Last week, Hagans averaged 16.5 points, 4.5 assists, four steals and 2.5 rebounds while shooting 73.3 percent (11-of-15) from the field in wins over Texas A&M and Vanderbilt. He had 18 points vs. Texas A&M, the third straight game he eclipsed his career-high. He has scored in double figures in four straight games and leads the team with 15.0 points per game in SEC play.
This is the second time Hagans has won SEC Freshman of the Week this season. Keldon Johnson has also won the honor twice and Tyler Herro once. Ole Miss’ Terence Davis won SEC Player of the Week.
