Caldwell-Pope named SEC Player of the Year

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Georgia's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been named Southeastern Conference player of the year by league coaches.

Florida's Billy Donovan is SEC coach of the year and Kentucky's Nerlens Noel is the top freshman and defensive player. The league released the awards and All-SEC teams on Tuesday.

Caldwell-Pope is the SEC's No. 2 scorer with 18.0 points a game. He's one of only 10 Division I players to score in double figures in every game.

Donovan led the Gators to the regular season SEC title for a fourth time.

Noel blocked 106 shots in 24 games before sustaining a season-ending knee injury on Feb. 12. He averaged 10.5 points and 9.5 rebounds.

Kentucky teammate Kyle Wiltjer is Sixth Man of the Year while Florida's Patric Young earned Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors.
