Congratulations to Bam Adebayo, who just won SEC Freshman of the Week for his impressive performances vs. Missouri and Florida.
Bam had 40 points and 30 rebounds in what was by far his best week as a Wildcat. He had 22 points and 15 rebounds vs. Missouri and 18 points and 15 rebounds vs. Florida. Bam also made a little history, becoming the first Wildcat to haul in consecutive games of 15 or more rebounds since Jared Prickett on Feb. 6 and Feb. 9, 1994. He’s the first Wildcat since Sam Bowie on March 1 and March 3, 1984 to post 15 or more rebounds against consecutive SEC foes.
This is Bam’s first SEC Weekly honor and the 10th of the year for Kentucky, the most of any team in the conference. Let’s celebrate with his highlights:
