    SEC Men's Hoops Players Of The Week

    Florida’s Kenny Boynton, a 6-foot-2, 189-pound junio guard from Pompano Beach, Fla., was named SEC Player of the Week after registering 22 points, two assists, one rebound and one steal in a win over 22nd-ranked Texas A&M in the Orange Bowl Classic in Sunrise, Fla. The 22 points marked the sixth time this season and 22nd time in his career that Boynton has surpassed the 20-point plateau. Boynton, who was named MVP of the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic, converted six of his 12 shots from behind the arc against the Aggies. The scoring output moved him into 34th on UF’s all-time scoring list with 1,191 points.

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound freshman guard from Greenville, Ga., was named SEC Freshman of the Week after recording 21 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in a win at Southern Cal. He scored five points in the last 45 seconds to lead the Bulldogs to the four-point road victory. Caldwell-Pope leads Georgia in scoring (14.2 ppg). At his current clip, he would become the first UGA freshman to lead his team in scoring since Jumaine Jones in 1998.
