He is one of 40 men’s college basketball players to receive this recognition. Reeves has had a career-best season, scoring in double figures in every game but one, shooting 50.1% from the field and 42.2% from behind the arc.

🔼 Votes are In. Junior goalkeeper Tallulah Miller has been elected to serve as vice chair of the SEC Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC). On the staff, student-athletes voice their concerns related to experience, wellness and playing rules.
