SEC Player of the Week - Kentucky's Jamal Murray, a 6-foot-4, 207-pound freshman guard from Kitchener, Ontario, averaged 21.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and four assists in wins at Florida and over LSU. Murray continued his streak of 20 or more point performances with 21 at Florida and 22 in the regular-season finale against LSU on Saturday en route to securing UK's 47th regular-season SEC title. Murray shot 50.0 percent from the field and 57.1 percent from behind the arc as he drained four 3-pointers in both contests. He also got to the foul line for at least six makes in both games. Murray has continued to be a consistent performer on the boards as well. He has hauled in seven or more rebounds in four of his last six games, including both games this week.

Jamal Murray finishes the regular season tied with LSU's Ben Simmons for the most weekly SEC honors this season. The last one is the first time he's been named SEC Player of Year.

SEC Co-Freshmen of the Week - Kentucky's Skal Labissiere Named SEC Co-Freshman of the Week honors. Labisierre, a 6-foot-11, 225-pound forward from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, averaged 14.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.5 blocks in wins over Florida and LSU. He began the week with an 11-point, eight-rebound effort at Florida. Labissiere followed it up with the best all-around game of his career with 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting while topping his previous career high from earlier in the week with nine rebounds. He also added a career-high six blocks.

Skal started the year with the first SEC Freshman Week honor of the season. And now he ends the season with the final one.
