UK's Poythress named SEC Freshman of Week
Poythress had 20 points and a team-high eight rebounds in a loss to No. 9 Duke. He then topped that performance with a 9-of-10 shooting night en route to a career-high 22 points in the win over Lafayette.
The Tennessee native became the first freshman since Brandon Knight in February 2011 to have consecutive 20-point efforts.
The honor is the first in Poythress' career and the second for UK this season.
The Wildcats return to action Wednesday against the Morehead State Eagles in Rupp Arena. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET and the game will be televised live on FS South and delayed on the UK IMG Sports Network.
