The Southeastern Conference released the names of its 2018 SEC Legends class on Wednesday, and Joe Crawford will represent the University of Kentucky as its newest member.

Past greats from all 14 SEC member institutions will be honored at the SEC tournament in St. Louis next month. Crawford will be honored at halftime of the Cats’ first game.

A four-year player at Kentucky from 2005-08, Crawford is one of the leading scorers in school history with 1,438 career points, good enough for No. 19 on the all-time scoring list. He averaged double-figure scoring in three of his four seasons, including 17.9 points per game in his senior year.

Here is the entire 2018 SEC Legends class:

James Robinson, Alabama
Jonathon Modica, Arkansas
Joel Eaves, Auburn
David Lee, Florida
Chad Kessler, Georgia
Joe Crawford, Kentucky
John Brady, LSU
Rob Evans, Ole Miss
Ray White, Mississippi State
Doug Smith, Missouri
Carey Rich, South Carolina
Howard Wood, Tennessee
Barry Davis, Texas A&M
Godfrey Dillard, Vanderbilt

Go Cats.

    Has there ever been a more Vanderbilt name than Godfrey Dillard?

    That is not exactly a who’s who list of SEC greatness. Do they get a free sandwich or a t-shirt for showing up to a tournament game?

    One of the biggest ball hogs we’ve ever had. Never did like Joe all that much. I’ll never forget seeing him get a turnover at half court, with a teammate going wide open under the basket. What’s he do? Instead of the pass and assist, he dribbles all the way to the basket to get his points… the most Joe Crawford thing ever!

    Crawford was okay, but legend? David Lee and Doug Smith, definitely, but isn’t Smith like 50? He played with Travis Ford and Anthony Peeler at Missouri on the 1990 team. Jeesh!

    Legends? I have never heard of most of these guys. I had actually forgotten about Joe Crawford.
