The SEC has announced its Preseason Coaches All-SEC Teams, and two Kentucky Wildcats made the cut.

He scored double-figures in 26 games, including a career-high 37 points at Arkansas in the regular-season finale.

During the GLOBL Jam over the summer, Reeves was named MVP of the tournament after averaging 23 points per outing.
