KeVaughn Allen earns Freshman of the Week honors

Florida freshman guard KeVaughn Allen was named SEC Freshman of the Week by the conference on Monday.

The 6-foot-2, 183-pound guard from Little Rock, Ark., averaged 17.5 points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals on the road at Vanderbilt and No. 9 West Virginia.

Against the Mountaineers top defense in the country, Allen scored 19 points in the Gators resounding home win over the top 10 team.  West Virginia is a big foul team and Allen took advantage getting to the foul line nine times and converting on all nine free throws.  Allen helped his teammates as well handing out a career high four assists in the contest.

Against Vanderbilt, a notoriously difficult place to shoot the ball, Allen added 16 points in the one point loss. He scored the team’s final 11 points over the last 32 seconds to get to his 16 points.

Allen has really stepped up his game as of late and was really efficient in the last week shooting 50% from the field, 55.9% from three-point land, and 100% on 10 free throws in the two contests. 

Allen and the Gators host Arkansas at 7 p.m. Wednesday Feb. 3, and aired live on the SEC Network.
