Congrats to the Harrison Twins and Karl Towns, who were named to the early-season watch list for the Oscar Robertson Trophy, given annually to the best player in college basketball by the US Basketball Writers Association. UK accounted for three of the SEC’s five players on the list, which also included LSU’s Jordan Mickey and Arkansas’ Bobby Portis.

Meanwhile, the Cats were shut out of the weekly SEC awards, with Alabama’s Levi Randolph taking home SEC Player of the Week and Vanderbilt’s Wade Baldwin IV taking home SEC Freshman of the Week.

Wade Baldwin IV isĀ almost moreĀ of a Vandy name than Patton Robinette.

    Okafor is going to win all the awards.
    #1 he plays for Duke
    #2 they run the offense through him
    #3 he plays for Duke

    The exclusion of individual awards will be the hallmark of this team’s greatness. Cal will pick up on this theme toward the end of the year.
