I’ve been asked again to provide a ballot for the SEC men’s basketball preseason awards.
I picked Florida to finish fourth in the SEC East division and no Gator players on the All-SEC team. I also picked Kentucky as the SEC champion and UK freshman John Wall on the All-SEC first team. If there was a ballot for an All-SEC second team, I would have given Kenny Boynton and Alex Tyus some consideration.
Here’s my ballot:
3. South Carolina
1. Mississippi State
2. Ole Miss
C — Jarvis Varnado, Mississippi State
F — Patrick Patterson, Kentucky
G — John Wall, Kentucky
G – Terrico White, Ole Miss
G – Devan Downey, South Carolina
SEC Champion: Kentucky
SEC Player of the Year: Devan Downey, South Carolina
The preseason picks will be released by the league on Monday.
