SEC: All-January

February 13th, 2008

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.

Because nothing happens on Friday's in college basketball, I have a little extra time to write about tomorrow's action. What follows are not predictions, but mathematical certainties.


.. that Roy Hibbert will not hit another game-winning three against Notre Dame

.. that Antoine Agudio will lead Hofstra in points, and that the Pride will lose again

.. that an ESPN announcer will mention Greg Paulus was a quaterback in high school

.. that OJ Mayo will have more turnovers than assists against UCLA
