It sure is nice to have such representation on the 2012-2013 SEC Coaches Pre-Season All-SEC teams, but expect that by the end of the season, there will be more UK players than the two represnted, Nerlens Noel (First Team), and Alex Poythress (Second Team). Check out the full list here. I can’t argue with who they have included, but to be fair, they have Jarnell Stokes on the Second Team which is a joke considering his teammate, Jeronne maymon occupies that spot on the First Team. Expect to see Archie Goodwin and Willie Cauley-Stein on either of these lists by season’s end.
Speaking of the season, it begins tonight against the Maryland Terrapins at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. ESPN is televising this 8:30 PM match up of two teams that haven’t faced each other since the 2002 season when the Terrapins knocked UK out in the Regional Semis.
