Blog: SEC recognizes Georgia top player Caldwell-Pope

Georgia is winning basketball games lately and getting individual honors to boot.

Sophomore guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was named Monday as the Southeastern Conference player of the week after leading Georgia to victories over Auburn and South Carolina.

Caldwell-Pope averaged 19.5 points and 8.5 rebounds last week. He averaged 19.8 points and shot 58 percent from the field, including 47 percent from 3-point range in the last five games, a stretch in which the Bulldogs have won four.

Caldwell-Pope is the first Georgia player to be named conference player of the week since Gerald Robinson on Feb. 13, 2012.

He’s second in the SEC in scoring at 17.5 points per game and 3-pointers per game at 2.4.

“Kentavious has improved in a lot of areas,” coach Mark Fox said this morning. “I think he’s just playing more efficiently this year. He doesn’t have to shoot it 20 times to be productive. I think he’s understanding to start making people better. He’s had a very mature approach. He’s eager to get better. …He’s just really matured to a certain extent.”
