Shai Gilgeous-Alexander named SEC Freshman of the Week

The Southeastern Conference finally came to its senses and named Shai Gilgeous-Alexander the SEC Freshman of the Week.

With Quade Green out, Gilgeous-Alexander stepped into the starting lineup in Kentucky’s wins over Texas A&M and Vanderbilt. He played 39 minutes in each of those games, while leading the Cats in scoring at 19 points per game in the two wins. He also dished out a team-best 5.5 assists per game and shot 61.9 percent from the field.

It’s Gilgeous-Alexander’s first time winning the award, but probably not his last.

    Well deserved award. With Green hurt we are so lucky to have another quality point guard. He probably should be the starting point guard. If Green does not come back soon, he may well lose his starting job.
