BIRMINGHAM, Al. - Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel, a 6-foot-10, 244-pound freshman forward from Everett, Mass., was named SEC Freshman of the Week after averaging nine points, 10.5 rebounds and seven blocks against Alabama and LSU.

Noel logged a career-high eight blocks in a set-back at Alabama before stretching his streak of six or more blocks in a game to five-straight games with six against LSU.

He has now logged 83 blocks on the season which ranks as the second-most in a single-season in UK history.

Noel posted 10 points against the Tigers and has reached double-figure scoring in all but one SEC game this season.

His 13 rebounds against the Crimson Tide marked a single-game high against league foes this season for the first-year player.
