Five Kentucky Players Earn Preseason All-SEC Accolades

UK Basketball 300BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (11/8/13) – Five Kentucky players were honored with preseason All-Southeastern Conference honors by the league’s coaches it was announced by the league office on Friday. Freshman Julius Randle was tabbed to the league’s first team, while sophomores Willie Cauley-Stein and Alex Poythress along with freshmen Andrew Harrison and James Young claimed second team accolades.

Seven different schools are represented on the two teams with Kentucky having five selections while Tennessee had three and Florida, LSU and Missouri each have two selections. In all, 37 different players received votes for the coaches’ teams.
 
The coaches’ preseason All-SEC first and second teams consist of a minimum of eight players on each squad, voted on by the SEC Head Men’s Basketball Coaches. No ties were broken and no predicted order of finish was made.
 
Randle averaged 18.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game in UK’s two exhibition contests. He notched a double-double in both victories. The Dallas native previously earned All-SEC preseason first team honors by the league’s media voting panel and was tabbed the early season favorite to win SEC Player of the Year accolades.
 
Cauley-Stein and Poythress are UK’s top-two returning scorers from the 2012-13 squad. Both players earned distinction on the All-SEC Freshman team a season ago. Cauley-Stein logged 9.5 points and seven blocked shots in Kentucky’s two preseason victories. Poythress averaged 8.5 points in the two outings.
