Georgia’s J.J. Frazier, Yante Maten both make AP All-SEC teams


J.J. Frazier and Yante Maten both raked in some more accolades on Tuesday, earning Associated Press All-SEC honors.

Frazier, a senior, is one of four guards on the All-SEC first team. Maten, a junior forward, earned second-team honors. The SEC coaches voted both players first-team All-SEC.

Both players are tied for the team lead in points per game (18.7). Maten earned the honor despite missing most of Georgia’s past five games with a knee injury.

Georgia and Kentucky were the only teams to have multiple players earn all-conference nods. The Wildcats led the conference with three All-SEC selections.
