And so it begins…

Today, Skal Labissiere picked up his first of many SEC Freshman of the Week awards, receiving honors for his 17.5 points and three blocks per game in Kentucky’s back-to-back season openers. Labissiere’s debut weekend was highlighted by his 26-point performance on 10-of-12 shooting against NJIT.

The big Haitian shares this week’s freshman award with LSU’s Antonio Blakeney. Blakeney and Ben Simmons will make it difficult for Kentucky’s Labissiere, Jamal Murray and Isaiah Briscoe to take freshman honors every week this season.
