2010-2011 SECSportsFan.com Awards
First congratulations to the Florida Gators on winning the SEC regular season and the Kentucky Wildcats for winning the SEC tournament championships. After some early season struggles for the Gators and SEC road struggles for the Cats, both teams were able to turn things around and made a heck of a run through the SEC. We will take a deep look at the Cats and Gators in the year end wrap-up after the NCAA tournament.
For now in this writing, we will present our ALL-SEC Teams and awards. Even though the AP and coaches already gave out their awards, we have a different take from them.
Our All-SEC Teams are a little different. There are only two teams and five players to a team.
Chris Warren - Mississippi - 19 points, 3.8 assists, 93% free throw
Brandon Knight - Kentucky - 17.5 points, 4.2 assists, 4 rebounds
John Jenkins - Vanderbilt - 19.5 points, 3 rebounds, 40% 3 point
Terrence Jones - Kentucky - 16.5 points, 9 rebounds, 2 blocks
Trey Thompkins - Georgia - 16.1 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2 blocks
Erving Walker - Florida - 14.6 points, 3.3 assists, 3 rebounds
Scotty Hopeson - Tennessee - 17.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists
Chandler Parsons - Florida - 11.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists
Jeffery Taylor - Vanderbilt - 15.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists
JaMychal Green - 16.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.3 blocks
Looking at individual awards, I went completely different than the AP. I gave coach of the year to Anthony Grant of Alabama. He did a heck of a job leading the Tide to the SEC West title in only his second season. With Grant as head coach, Alabama can look forward to more of this in the future.
Coach of the Year - Anthony Grant - Alabama
Player of the Year - John Jenkins - Vanderbilt
Freshman of the Year - Brandon Knight - Kentucky
Sixth Man of the Year - Doron Lamb
For the SEC Tournament team, my picks were pretty much dead on with the media members in Atlanta. Plus I added a couple of guys from Alabama and Vanderbilt.
SEC Tournament Team
Darius Miller - Kentucky MVP
Josh Harrellson - Kentucky
Brandon Knight - Kentucky
Chandler Parsons - Florida
Kenny Boynton - Florida
Jeffery Taylor - Vanderbilt
Tony Mitchell - Alabama
So the SEC basketball season is over. Now we get to sit back and see who gets into the NCAA tournament. We will have a look at all the SEC teams in the "Big Dance" when the brackets are announced.
