Bianucci and Brooks Make All-SEC

Auburn, Ala.--Sophomore outfielder Mike Bianucci and freshman second baseman Robert Brooks have been named to All-SEC teams by the league's coaches. Bianucci is a second team All-SEC selection after hitting .326 with 14 homeruns and Brooks, who started every game for the Tigers this season, is on the freshman All-SEC team.

Bianucci's 14 homeruns led the team and as did his .640 slugging percentage. He was second on the team in RBI (51) and total bases (112) and third in walks (29) and on-base percentage (.427) despite missing 10 games because of injuries. As a draft-eligible sophomore, Bianucci is expected to be an early selection in the June 7 MLB Draft.

Brooks started all 56 games and hit .281 with 11 doubles, a triple and a pair of homeruns. He also stole 16 bases and helped turn 33 double plays.

The Tigers have had at least one All-SEC selection in every year since 1985.
