Meeks, Patterson Receive All-SEC Honors

LEXINGTON, KY – Jodie Meeks and Patrick Patterson were both named First Team All-SEC by league coaches as announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

Meeks, a unanimous choice, led the Wildcats in scoring and ranked fifth nationally with a 24.7 ppg average during the regular season. He set the school record for points in a game when he poured in 54 at Tennessee and went on to break the single-season three-point record with 107 during the regular season.

Patterson finished the regular season as the only player in the SEC to rank in the top five in scoring (fourth - 18.4 ppg) and rebounding (third – 9.2 rpg). He leads the league and ranks eighth nationally in field goal percentage (61.5).

The last time Kentucky had two players named to the coaches’ first team was in 2004 when Erik Daniels and Gerald Fitch received the honor.

The honor is the second for both players, as they were named Freshman All-SEC performers in their respective freshmen years.
