TyTy Washington Drew Brown - Sea of Blue

Another week, another SEC honor for Kentucky Wildcats guard and future first-round NBA Draft pick TyTy Washington.

On Monday, it was announced that Washington had earned SEC Co-Freshman of the Week honors, sharing the award with Auburn Tigers forward Jabari Smith. It’s the fourth straight week Washington has won or shared the award. He becomes the first SEC player to win or share the honor in four straight weeks since Devin Booker did so five straight times during the 2014-15 season.

In convincing wins over the Vanderbilt Commodores and No. 22 Tennessee Volunteers, Washington led the Wildcats with 21.5 points per game with 4.5 assists per contest, He shot 66.7% from the field, 50% from 3-point range and 80% from the free-throw line.

Washington is now the only freshman in college hoops averaging at least 13.0 points, 4.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game while shooting at least 45% from the field and 40% or better from deep.
