The SEC Freshman of the Year race looks like it will be a three player battle. Two of the three (A.J. Ogilvy didn’t make the cut) make a return appearance on the monthly All-SEC list.
Guard – Devan Downey – South Carolina – SO
19.4ppg, 5.3apg, 3.3spg
Best game – Jan 2nd – Radford – 23 points, seven steals, five assists, three rebounds
The little man certainly has a nose for the ball – he averaged four steals a game for January. Add to that his 22 points and five assists a game and you have one of the best Januarys by a player in the SEC.
I was watching Kansas play about a week ago, and listening to the starting line-ups got me thinking …“Man – they have a loaded roster. And that’s without Julian Wright!!” I started thinking that I could take that team to a title, that even I couldn’t screw up a team with all that talent.
Three Stars of The Day
We handpick the best performances of the day, whether it be stat lines that make you drool, or clutch performances. Either way, its our way of showing the love:
Yes its cliché, end of year articles about the biggest stories of the year, or the best moments, or the most important people. But, what can you do.. there’s just something nostalgic about New Year’s time. So I decided to ask CHN writers some of the standard year in review questions, a nice way to wrap up what was an exciting year in college basketball.
