TJ Starks was named to the SEC All-Freshman team to round out a decent post-season awards showing

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Texas A&M C. Morgan Engel-USA TODAY Sports

The SEC announced their 2017-2018 postseason awards today, and we did alright for ourselves.

Tyler Davis: First Team All-SEC

You really can’t say enough about the impact Tyler had on this season. He was the only Aggie to start all 31 games, he led the conference in rebounds (8.9 rpg) and field goal percentage (58.2%), and he ranked 11th in scoring (15.1 ppg).

He brought it every night, he worked his butt off, and he never fell victim to the disciplinary nonsense that set us adrift for large portions of the early SEC slate.

Congratulations on a well-earned honor, Tyler.

Robert Williams: Defensive Player of the Year, SEC All-Defensive Team

Williams didn’t have a consistent offensive impact this season, but his defensive impact was extraordinary and earned him a second straight SEC Defensive Player of the Year nod.

He was second in the SEC in blocks per game (2.5), and he changed countless additional shots at the rim. It’s easy to see why people are excited about him at the next level.

TJ Starks: SEC All-Freshman Team

Starks was the lynchpin for our late season revival, and he led the way during our most crucial stretch of the season - back-to-back wins over Auburn and Kentucky.

The TJ Starks experience isn’t always smooth, but he can create his own shot and he’s not afraid of the big moment. And without him, this team doesn’t make the NCAA’s.

Congrats, TJ.
