If you're looking for the most important game in the SEC season over the past few seasons, LSU (4-2, 2-0 SEC) vs. Florida (4-1, 2-1 SEC) may be the one worthy of that distinction. It may not be the most heated of games on the SEC schedule from a rivalry standpoint, but the number of players who can play on Sundays makes this must-see television. "What makes this such a big game is the quality of personnel on both sides," said Florida head coach Urban Meyer earlier this week.

Multiple sources are reporting that Arkansas State has hired former LSU coach John Brady. Brady replaces Dickey Nutt, who resigned after 13 years leading the Indians.

Brady was fired by LSU in the middle of the season, with the Tigers struggling to an 8-13 start.

There was some recent rumblings that Nolan Richardson, the long time Arkansas coach, would get the job.. but talks fell through.

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.
