KCP named Mr. SEC!

Not since the Human Highlight Film was simply known as Georgia's Dominique Wilkins has UGA had an SEC Player of the Year. Until today when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was selected by the league's coaches to have the honor. (note: 'Nique was selected by the media, KCP by the league's coaches)

Thirty-two years is a long time. But when you see these stats... 
Second in scoring (18.0 points per game), behind Henderson. - Second in 3-pointers made (2.5 per game, a total of 31) - Second in minutes per game (33.8 per game) - Third in steals (2.1 per game) - Third in defensive rebounds (5.8 per game) - Sixth in 3-point percentage (37.1 percent) - Sixth in free throw percentage (80.9 percent) - Eighth in rebounding (6.9 rebounds per game) - Ninth in field goal percentage (43.2 perceent)
...it's easy to see why the drought ended. Congrats to Kentavious for this honor and also having the opportunity to defend it the next two years. (kidding...no, not really)

Also congrats are in order for Charles Mann on being selected to the All Freshman team. Go Dawgs!
