Moss Point's Booker ties SEC record with 4th straight Freshman of the Week honor

Kentucky's Devin Booker was named the SEC Freshman of the Week for a fourth consecutive time, tying the conference record on Monday.

Booker averaged 10 points and 1.5 rebounds last week in wins over Missouri and Alabama.

He scored nine points in a 69-53 win over his dad's alma mater, Missouri, and 11 in the 70-55 victory over the Crimson Tide.

For the week, Booker shot 53.8 percent from the field and a squad-best 60 percent from behind the 3-point line.

Booker ties former Kentucky stars Nerlens Noel and John Wall for the most consecutive SEC Freshman of the Week honors.

Booker is the second-leading scorer on the No. 1 Kentucky squad with an average of 10.7 points a game.
