(AP) Former Moss Point basketball star Devin Booker has been named SEC Freshman of the Week for the fourth straight time and fifth time this season.
Booker, a 6-foot-6 guard, averaged 10 points in victories over Missouri and Alabama last week. Against the Crimson Tide on Sunday, he scored 11 points — including three 3-pointers — as the Wildcats won 70-55 to improve to 21-0 overall and 8-0 in the SEC.
For the season, Booker is averaging 10.7 points per game, which ranks second on the Kentucky team. He leads the Wildcats in 3-point percentage (.506) and 3-pointers made (39) heading into Tuesday night’s home game against Georgia.
Texas A&M’s Danuel House was named SEC Player of the Week. House averaged 17.5 points in victories over Auburn and Vanderbilt as the Aggies (15-5, 6-2 SEC) extended their winning streak to six games.
