P.J. Washington, Tyler Herro Earn AP All-SEC Honors

The Associated Press has revealed its All-SEC teams and regular season awards.  In a surprising twist, P.J. Washington was the the only Wildcat named to an All-SEC team.

The Kentucky forward was a First Team All-SEC selection after scoring 14.9 points and grabbing 7.5 rebounds per game.  He was the only one on an All-SEC team, but Washington wasn’t the only Wildcat to win some hardware.

Tyler Herro was named SEC Newcomer of the Year after the freshman averaged 14.2 points per game and led the conference in free throw shooting percentage.  Herro is the seventh Wildcat to win the award in the John Calipari era, joining John Wall (2010), Terrence Jones (2011), Anthony Davis (2012), Julius Randle (2014), Karl-Anthony Towns (2015) and Malik Monk (2017).

Tennessee’s Grant Williams was named SEC Player of the Year, the Vols’ first winner since Chris Lofton in 2007.  Will Wade was the likely frontrunner for SEC Coach of the Year until last week.  The honor fell to Ole Miss’ Kermit Davis.

      I love reading the KSR blog. But man I’m glad you pointed that out. Is it too much to ask for just a little bit of fact checking from time to time? Anyone winning conference player of the year should be accurately noted and to overlook that with Chris Lofton from over ten years ago is lazy journalism.

      Tennessee finished in 3rd place in the SEC. They are a great team, but to have the POY, a first teamer and 2 second teamers is a bit much. To occupy four separate slots for a 3rd place team? Herro, Naz Reid?? Both of those guys are better than Schofield.

    I still don’t understand the Keldon Johnson is a high draft pick talk. I like him. Hope he does well. But don’t understand.
