Mathies SEC Player of Year again and teammates Stallworth and Walker honored

LEXINGTON  (AP) — A’dia Mathies is the Southeastern Conference’s player of the year again, though the Kentucky senior guard shares this award with Tennessee’s Meighan Simmons.

Mathies leads three Wildcats on the all-SEC teams announced Tuesday. The preseason pick to repeat as the conference’s top player, the Louisville native averaged 16.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game this season and became Kentucky’s No. 2 career scorer.

Forward DeNesha Stallworth (12.5 points, 6.0 rebounds) also made the first team in voting by the league’s 14 coaches. Forward Samarie Walker (9.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, team-high 46 blocks) made the second team along with the league’s All-Defensive team.

Seventh-ranked Kentucky (25-4, 13-3) is the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament and opens play Friday in Duluth, Ga.

    Awesome and well deserved! All three did a great job this season. I hope they can go far in the tourney.


    FANtastic, good news all around.

    Mathies has to “share” the award? C’mon man….

    Congratulations to all three very deserving players. I think Mathies, along with Victoria Dunlap, really changed the direction of the program.

      Coach Mitchell agrees with you and mentioned that when Mathies agreed to come to UK, “that I could put a flag in the ground”…

      I agree with you as well. Victoria is one on my all-time favorite Wildcats, men and women. I use to say that she is/was the PATRICK PATTERSON of the Hoops team.
