Brewer Named Second-Team All-SEC

ATLANTA, Ga. -- A fine all-around season by Arkansas sophomore Ronnie Brewer was recognized by the Associated Press with second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors.

Brewer ranked in the SEC's top six in four statistical categories and led the Razorbacks in scoring, rebounding, steals and minutes.

Brewer, who tied his career high of 23 points three times this season, averaged 16.4 points (sixth in the SEC), 47.6 percent from the field (fifth), 2.55 steals (second) and had a 1.71 assist-turnover ratio (fifth).

The SEC first team was led by Player of the Year Brandon Bass of LSU and he was joined by fellow unanimous pick and 2004 SEC Player of the Year Lawrence Roberts of Mississippi State.

Kennedy Winston of Alabama, Chuck Hayes of Kentucky and conference-leading scorer Anthony Roberson of Florida rounded out the rest of the first team.

Brewer was joined on the second team by Newcomer of the Year Glen Davis of LSU, Earnest Shelton of Alabama, Kelenna Azubuike of Kentucky and David Lee of Florida.

It was third All-SEC honor for Brewer, who was named to the preseason All-SEC second team and to the 2004 All-Freshman team after last season.

Arkansas freshman Darian Townes, who was second on the team to Brewer in scoring (10.2) and rebounding (4.6) and had two double-doubles this season, was named honorable mention freshman All-American by Rivals.com.

Brewer is the 14th Razorback to earn All-SEC honors since Arkansas joined the league in 1991.
