Releford on All-SEC first team
TUSCALOOSA | It has been a busy three days for University of Alabama junior guard Trevor Releford.
After a game-winning 50-foot shot against Georgia on Saturday - a play that earned the No. 1 spot on ESPN SportsCenter's top 10 plays of the day - Releford was on the 2013 All-Southeastern Conference and All-SEC Defensive teams, released Tuesday.
Releford was the only Alabama player on the teams. He is averaging 15.6 points, 2.7 assists and 2.1 steals per game.
The league coaches selected eight players as first-team All-SEC choices and put nine on the second team.
Florida's Billy Donovan was accorded Coach of the Year honors. Georgia sophomore forward Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was selected SEC Player of the Year, while Kentucky's Nerlens Noel took both SEC Freshman of the Year and SEC Defensive Player of the Year accolades. Kentucky's Kyle Wiltjer was tabbed SEC Sixth Man of the Year, while Florida's Patric Young earned SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors.
Caldwell-Pope, who ranks second in the SEC in scoring (18.0 points per game) and third in steals (2.1 per game), is one of only 10 players in NCAA Division I to score in double figures in every one of his team's games this season. The Greenville, Ga., native is the first Georgia player to be voted SEC Player of the Year by the league's coaches.
