For the second straight week, Immanuel Quickley is the SEC Player of the Week. 

The SEC named Quickley and Arkansas guard Mason Jones Co-SEC Players of the week after both put together a dominant pair of games.

By earning a share of the honor, Quickley is the first Wildcat in program history to win the award in back to back weeks. 

Quickley helped guide Kentucky to victories over Texas A&M and Auburn by averaging 24.0 points per game with 8.5 rebounds, two assists, and a steal.

In Kentucky’s Feb. 24 victory over Texas A&M, Quickley became the first Wildcat to score 30 points in a game since Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 30 on Jan. 30, 2018, against Vanderbilt. His eight three-pointers from that game tied the record for the most three-pointers in a single game in the John Calipari era.

With his recent run, Quickley has solidified himself as the front-runner for the SEC Player of the Year award. He is averaging 16.3 points per game with 4.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists.

Quickley and the Cats will be back in action Tuesday when they play host to the Tennessee Volunteers.
