That’s right, Nerlens Noel is again chosen as SEC Freshman of the Week. He has been chosen 4 weeks in a row!
Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel, a 6-foot-10, 244-pound freshman forward from Everett, Mass., was named SEC Freshman of the Week after averaging 10 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in wins over South Carolina and Auburn. Noel helped lead UK to a pair of wins at home this week to run the Wildcats’ winning streak to five games. Noel logged double-doubles in both outings and has now put together a career-long three-game double-double streak. Noel had 10 points and 10 boards in a win over South Carolina to couple with five blocks. Against Auburn, he logged 10 points on a career-best 8-for-13 day at the line to go along with a game-high 12 rebounds. He continued his streak of at least one block in every game this season.
Congratulations Nerlens, you deserve it!
