3 Florida Gators earn All-SEC basketball honors

GAINESVILLE — Three Gator basketball players were named All-SEC selections on Tuesday, and sophomore F Patric Young was honored as the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Junior G Kenny Boynton and freshman G Bradley Beal were named first-team All-SEC, and senior G Erving Walker was a second-team selection. Boynton and Beal are the first Florida teammates to receive first-team honors in the same season since Al Horford, Corey Brewer and Joakim Noah in 2007. Beal was also named to the All-Freshman team — becoming the first player in Florida history to be named first-team All-SEC and SEC All-Freshman in the same season.

Young is the third Gator to earn SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors, joining two-time winner Lee Humphrey (2006 and 2007) and Ray Shipman (2010). Young holds a 3.37 GPA in telecommunications.

Kentucky's John Calipari is the SEC Coach of the Year and freshman Anthony Davis is Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year.
