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.
