LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -- For the second time this season, Kentucky standout Keldon Johnson has been named the SEC Freshman of the Week.
Johnson drained a career-high six three-pointers in Saturday's blowout win over Utah and scored 24 points on 8-9 shooting. Johnson is Kentucky's leading scorer at 16.1 points per game and has reached double figures in all but one game this season.
Johnson's six triples against the Utes were the most for any UK player this season and the most since Wenyen Gabriel hit seven in the SEC Tournament against Alabama on March 10, 2018.
The Wildcats return to action Saturday at 5:15 against North Carolina in the CBS Sports Classic in Chicago. The game will air live on WKYT.
