Congratulations to Karl Towns, Devin Booker, Trey Lyles, and Tyler Ulis, who were all named the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll this morning. The former freshmen were four of 83 student athletes from UK to receive the honor, the second most of any SEC school. To make the honor roll, student-athletes must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
So all four UK freshmen made the SEC All-Freshman Team AND the SEC Freshman Academic Honor Roll. All while helping their team to a 38-1 record and the Final Four. And three of them just got drafted in the lottery.
Yeah, that 2014 class ended up being pretty awesome.
