Kentucky's Mathies repeats as AP SEC player of year; Bone on 1st-Team

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - Kentucky guard A'dia Mathies has been named Southeastern Conference women's player of the year by The Associated Press for the second season in a row.

The 5-foot-9 senior kept the award in the Bluegrass State for the fourth straight year overall. Kentucky's Victoria Dunlap won in 2010 and 2011 before Mathies went back-to-back for the Wildcats.

Tennessee claimed the other two awards announced Tuesday. Holly Warlick, who took over for the ailing Pat Summitt, was a unanimous choice as AP coach of the year. Freshman center Bashaara Graves was named newcomer of the year on every ballot.

Mathies also repeated as a unanimous first-team choice. She was joined on the squad by Texas A&M center Kelsey Bone, Tennessee guard Meighan Simmons, LSU forward Theresa Plaisance, and Vanderbilt forward Tiffany Clarke.
