Blind Test: Who’s the best in the SEC?

New, 11 comments

No cheating.

NCAA Basketball: Georgia at Auburn John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The SEC has been a league dominated by the Kentucky Wildcats this season. If that sounds familiar, it probably should if you’re familiar at all with SEC hoops. With that said, there’ve been some terrific individual efforts that spread outside of Lexington this season and a fun race for SEC Player of the Year is starting to emerge.

We’re about midway through the month of January so it’s not too crazy to start forecasting who could win this award or ask, in simpler terms, who the best player in the SEC is thus far. Below are two tables (stats courtesy of Sports-Reference.com) with measures that showcase five players’ stats to this point of the season. None of the players are identified so unless you look them up, you won’t know who the best is.

Take a gander at the tables and vote in the poll below as to who you think is the best player in the SEC so far. Good luck!
