2014 SEC Basketball Awards Announced

You won't believe which team shows up the most.


The SEC has announced its year-end awards, and Florida not surprisingly has taken a lot of them.

Billy Donovan won coach of the year, which makes sense considering the whole "first team ever to go 18-0 in league play" thing. His point guard Scottie Wilbekin took player of the year honors after being tied for the team's second-leading scorer and leading the team in assists and steals. Patric Young won both scholar-athlete of the year and defensive player of the year. Finally Dorian Finney-Smith, a former five-star recruit who would start on basically any other SEC team, won sixth-man honors.

The one honor that the veteran-laden Gators didn't swipe is freshman of the year. Kentucky's Julius Randle nabbed that one after averaging a double-double of 15.4 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. As he is one of the best players in the country, there really wasn't anyone else in the running here.

Hit the official press release to see the first and second-team All-SEC groups, as well as the all-freshman team and the defensive team. The conference apparently has an issue with counting, as the first team has eight players, the second team has 10 players, and the freshman team has eight players.
