Wall named AP SEC Player of the Year, Calipari named Coach of the Year

ATLANTA (AP) - Kentucky guard John Wall has been named player of
the year and newcomer of the year on The Associated Press
All-Southeastern Conference team, while John Calipari of the
Wildcats took the coaching award.
Wall and Calipari helped lead Kentucky back to the top of the
SEC after two disappointing seasons under Billy Gillispie.
Wall and another Wildcats freshman, forward DeMarcus Cousins,
were both unanimous choices to the first team, as was South
Carolina guard Devan Downey. The other first-teamers were Jarvis
Varnado of Mississippi State and Georgia's Trey Thompkins.
Kentucky's Patrick Patterson led the second team, which also
included Chris Warren of Mississippi, Jermaine Beal of Vanderbilt,
Tasmin Mitchell of LSU and Wayne Chism of Tennessee.
