Jamal Murray named Co-SEC Freshman of the Week

Graphic by @KentuckyMBB

After the month he’s had, Jamal Murray deserves all of the awards, but this week, he’ll have to settle for sharing the SEC Freshman of the Week award with LSU’s Antonio Blakeney. 

Murray averaged 28 points and 6.5 rebounds in Kentucky’s games against Alabama and Vanderbilt. He came two points shy of tying his career-high at Vandy, scoring 33 off 12-20 shooting including six threes. Meanwhile, Blakeney averaged 27 points and 3.5 rebounds vs. Arkansas and Florida, including a career-high 32 against the Gators.

This is Murray’s fourth SEC Freshman of the Week honor and Kentucky’s ninth SEC weekly honor of the season, more than any other team in the conference.

Congrats, Jamal.
