Four Gators Honored by SEC

The regular season may not have ended the way the Gators wanted it to, but four different Florida players were honored by the conference on Tuesday.

Florida guards Brad Beal and Kenny Boynton were both named First Team All-SEC. Boynton is Florida's leading scorer at 16.8 points per game, while Brad Beal is a close second at 14.4 points. Beal is also tied for the team lead in rebounds with Patric Young at 6.5 rebounds per game.

The First Team All-SEC was made up of eight players. Beal and Boynton joined three pairs of players from other schools, including Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Kentucky), Dee Bost and Arnett Moultrie (Mississippi State), and John Jenkins and Jeffery Taylor (Vanderbilt).

Beal was also named to the SEC All-Freshman Team.

Florida point guard Erving Walker was named Second Team All-SEC. Walker is averaging 12.4 points, the lowest season total since he averaged 10.1 points as a freshman.

Florida center Patric Young was named SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. On Monday, Will Yeguete was named to the SEC Community Service Team.

The awards list was splattered with Kentucky players and head coach John Calipari, who was named SEC Coach of the Year. Anthony Davis was named SEC Player of the Year, SEC Freshman of the Year and SEC Defensive Player of the Year. Kentucky's Darius Miller was named SEC Sixth-Man of the Year.
