Two Tigers Make All-SEC Freshmen Team

A pair of Auburn guards were selected the the SEC All-Freshman team.

Auburn, Ala.--Auburn guards Rasheem Barrett and Quantez Robertson were selected to the SEC All-Freshman Team by the league's coaches.

Barrett, who played in high school at Marist School in Atlanta, finished the regular season fourth in the league amongst freshmen in scoring at 11.1 points per game and second in free throw percentage at 75.4.

He had a three-game stretch in December where he scored 19, 28 and 21 in consecutive games while shooting 24-36 from the field, 7-11 on threes and 13-15 from the foul line.

Barrett (6-5, 220) shot 38.7 percent from three-point range and also averaged three rebounds and 1.6 assists.

At 6-5, Barrett is capable of scoring outside or inside.

After point guard Michael Woodard transferred from Auburn mid-season, Robertson (6-3, 190) was left as the only point guard on the Auburn roster. He played more minutes (35.26 per game) this season than any freshman in the league, and he also had more assists than any other freshman at 4.7 per contest.

Robertson, who grew up in Cincinnati and played high school at Laurinburg Prep in North Carolina, was also third in steals at 1.33 per game. He averaged 7.6 points and had a career high 17 at Tennessee on Feb. 15.

Joining Barrett and Robertson on the team are Alonzo Gee and Richard Hendrix of Alabama, Mike Mercer of Georgia, Tasmin Mitchell and Tyrus Thomas of LSU and Jamont Gordon of Mississippi State.
